…keep on learning. Take time to experiment. That is hard, but very important…Reserve time to do something not work related, but creative, even if it’s 15 minutes a day.

Took me almost ten years to realize I was holding myself back. Now that I’m aware, nothing can hold me back now.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

Don’t EVER give up!
Note to self.
Often people start out by thinking about all the things that they can’t do. Once you take that path, it’s very hard to get off of it. Shoot high and shoot often.

Take risks, make mistakes. Not many people will notice. And this is a good thing. Being unknown provides a great opportunity for experimentation and development.

Ira Glass has a video that is the best thing I’ve ever heard in terms of advice for people starting out. It boils down to him saying that you have to do a huge volume of work. That seems obvious by itself, but what he’s saying is that when you start out, you presumably have really good taste, but your ability to create work that lives up to that standard doesn’t exist yet. So, you make stuff and think it’s bad because it’s not as good as your taste knows it could be. That can be very demoralizing because when you’re working and making stuff you don’t like, it’s hard to continue.
