The Gap by Ira Glass Video
This Video Will Make You Never Want to Give Up
When you embark on something new, it's always exciting in the beginning, until you realize that you're not very good at it. But it's important to remember to push through and not give up. This video created by German designer Daniel Sax pairs audio clips of advice from Ira Glass, host of radio program This American Life, with cool visuals.
It can be discouraging to be a newbie, especially when the current reality falls far from your expectations. Glass reminds us that this is normal, and the most important thing to do is to put in a huge amount of work into improving the skill you want to hone. It can take years, but you should keep at it. "It's normal to take you a while, you just have to fight your way through that," says Glass.
