Watch — When You feel like Quitting

ira glass


On the days when you feel like quitting — there will be days like this — watch this brief video, shown below, and remember that it is just all part of the creative process.

So if any of you out there ever feel like quitting, watch this video, below.  No matter what, keep leaning in and persisting.  It is important to push through and move further than you think that you can go with your work.  To work on something for an extended period of time requires a vast amount of faith and trust.

  2. Love this Katie! Yes–fight your way through it. And I would add–see if you can find some joy in the process of failing. In some ways it’s a beautiful time. Because you learn so much, especially about your own strength. Failure leads to more experimentation which leads to something so uniquely you that people can’t help but stop and pay attention.
