I wanted to share this amazing bit of inspiration (hat tip to the amazing and talented Doc Waller) from one of my favorite people in the world of radio, Ira Glass, producer and host of NPR’s “This American Life“.
“What nobody tells people who are beginners…is that all of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste…But there is this gap…It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions…It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”
So don’t fear the gap and fill it with self-criticism, self-doubt and self-disappointment.
Instead, dig deep and find your inner reservoir of inspiration, and make and do and create until your well is dry. Then find a way to recharge…
