This especially resonated with me. I wrote about a similar topic [1] a few weeks ago, but being a college student - I love this "permission to suck" idea. It gives me the ability to stop being ashamed of my crappy projects, knowing that I'll get better. I find most college students simply don't work on stuff outside of school - probably because they don't give themselves permission to suck - and it really affects their abilities in the long run.
