Everybody wants all of their work to be beautiful and impactful. But doesn’t matter how much we want it or how gifted you are, it’s safe to assume that it’s not going to be the case. You got to work on your craft. That’s what’ll get you to excellence eventually. But on the way to excellence you’re going to have to create things that are basically trash, because you spend a lot of time with that. That’s just the way it is. You’re going to have to find a way to get yourself to sit down and work over and over again.
