Generous creativity means that we keep trying. Once we understand this work we are doing is for others, if something doesn’t work it means we haven’t gotten it right yet.
We’ll get it right because we must. It’s bigger than getting affirmation for what I did. People are counting on us. We see a deep hunger in the world only we can fill. If you stop, who will do it? You’re the only one who can do what you do, no one else.
Our unique contribution won’t be perfect out of the gate. But the more empathy we have, the brighter the path will illuminate. Iteration acknowledges we first see the world through our own eyes, but with time and dedication we can learn to see it through someone else’s.
Keep going. You’ll get there.
