Video: The Gap By Ira Glass

Who doesn’t have doubts about whether they have the talent to be the artist they want to be? I suppose there are a few people out there, but for the rest of us, doubt is a place with which we are all familiar.

I like this video because it’s honest and inspiring. It confirms that when you start out, it’s just not that good. But like a sculptor, you keep taking away the excess material until you uncover your work of art in it’s glorious form. It will be there, just as fantastic as you pictured it.

But in order to get there, you have to keep working. So keep it up, keep drafting, revising, giving up and starting over…whatever your process is. The art is there, like buried treasure, so don’t ever stop looking for it.
