For when you’re wondering if you’re even any good at this

Remember two things:

  1. It’s a really common form of self-doubt.
    At some point, most of us have thought something along the lines of “am I even any good at this?”… particularly when we’ve gotten over the novelty of making media, but are still building our skill base. It’s totally, utterly normal.
  2. It’s a process.
    Each time you make something, you learn. Make each thing better than the last. Keep practicing, keep making stuff, keep at it, and you will get better.

Ira Glass (US public radio legend, and of This American Life fame) says it much better than me. A very worthwhile two minutes of your time.
