There are some great points in there, particularly the quote from Ira Glass.
It's frustrating to have the taste to recognize what great looks like but not the talent to produce that result yourself. But that demarcation line, not giving up, saying to yourself, "Ok, that didn't work as well as I wanted, it's not great but it wants to be, what's the next thing to change that could make it better?" That seems to make a big difference.
I was quickly skimming the article but then I stumbled upon my project management mantra:
"A lot of people think that the first outing with a product is the product but the truth is more complicated. Whether you are going out with a minimum viable product or something more complex, there comes a point where one has to make the call as to a product being “good enough” for the marketplace. And “good enough” for anyone who has poured sweat and tears into a product is seldom what comes out of that first product."
and I had to read it, top to bottom. Best ten minutes of today's internet.
