I think that everything I do should come out a masterpiece the first time.
I am totally disappointed when it doesn’t.
Is this the dirty little secret that ‘professional’ artists don’t tell us? They don’t get it right the first (or second, or third….) time either?
Maybe we should shout it from the rooftops.
Maybe then I wouldn’t feel so inadequate.
Maybe it would help our kids know that nobody gets it right the first time.
Edison failed miserably for most of his early life.
He failed with the light bulb thousands of times before he got it right.
The difference is he kept going.
Most people don’t.
So here’s to perseverance (with a big dollop of humor.)
Heads down people and let’s keep going!
