“For the first couple of years that you’re making stuff, what you’re making isn’t so good. It’s not that great. It’s trying to be good … but it’s not quite that good. But your taste … your taste is the killer. And your taste is good enough that you can tell that what you’re making is kind of a disappointment to you…

A lot of people don’t get past that phase. A lot of people quit… Everybody goes through that… If you’re right now going through that phase, you gotta know, it’s totally normal and the most important thing you can do, is to do a lot of work… It’s only by doing that, … that your work will be as good as your ambitions.”

– Ira Glass (on Storytelling)
