“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”
Allow your criticism We always avoid if people criticise us. I learned rather avoiding criticism, allow people to criticise your loopholes, weaknesses and negative points. Do honest self analysis, find out if this criticism is really right??? If yes, just find out the ways to overcome all your negative and weak points and trust me result will be amazing and great. Even negetive criticism have positive aspects in life. You can learn to art of avoidance, maintaining your calm or even speaking up against it. All it teaches us to be better version of us and develop us to deal with different personalities in life. Remember life is extremely beautiful only with struggles, hard work and pain, without these life is really tasteless.
