The Best Advice I’ve Gotten in a While

I found this piece of advice from radio host Ira Glass a few days ago. Amid the craziness of oncoming final projects, not-to-great grades on assignments, and that stress that makes you ask “What am I doing here?”, Ira put me at ease.

This video is not exactly career advice, but it’s something good to keep in mind.

That advice is? It’s okay to fail. It’s how we learn.

This isn’t an excuse to slack off or do things half-hearted. It’s a reminder to practice your craft and don’t get down on yourself if the first one stinks. Do the work and do a lot of it. You will improve.
