I wonder is it possible that we keep on creating and creating with no outcome and get burned out? I mean it's possible that we create but others may not consume or it just gets wasted and we get into another burn out of depression?
I think it is, and to me expectations matter. If we expected people to use/consume our creation but no one does, then there will be burnout. If we purely expected self-satisfaction from our creation, not from others, soon there will be burnout as well since self-satisfaction can't and won't always come constantly. It is tricky, but taking it slow as others have mentioned can help avoiding burnout, but in my case it's taking it slow on my expectations.
I think it's less about creating and more about why you're creating.
