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.
