A message from Ira Glass to all who do creative work
It really is just that simple.
Regardless of the creative work you do, you just need to do it. I post this video for me as much as I post it for others, because there are periods of time--days, weeks, sometimes even months--where I am not doing the work of creating. I catch myself doing anything but creating, for a variety of reasons.
I think back to the work I did in college, most of which no longer exists. All of the ideas central to my current work were there. I still ask similar questions. If anything, I ask more questions. Asking questions is a good thing, a great thing...but making the work is the only way to share the questions so that we can all search for answers together.
