I saw this video pep talk by Ira Glass today and was thoroughly inspired. Inspired enough to listen to it several times through. This was so good for me to hear right now:
"It takes a while, it’s gonna take you a while, it’s normal to take a while and you just have to fight your way through that. OK? You will be fierce, you will be a warrior and you will make things that aren’t as good as you know in your heart you want them to be, and you’ll just make one after another…"
I'm going to repeat that to myself over and over, even in -- especially in -- the midst of feeling inadequate and impatient with the work I'm producing.
