Ira Glass on Pushing Past Quit

 

Someone linked me to this great little video directly after my Creative Mornings talk back in May that features a soundbite from Ira Glass set to some wonderful kinetic typography animation. I meant to share it then, but forgot until I saw my friend Megan Bowers tweet about it today.

In it, Ira talks about a lot of the same ideas I did regarding how hard it is to do something new. More importantly, how easy it is to feel like you want to just quit and try something else, when really, that's the point when you need to dig in, double down, and do a TON of work until you can't help but get better.

Lot of truth here.
