When You Aren’t as Good as You Could Be

I dearly love Ira Glass’s work for This American Life. His story telling has compelled me listen to the same episodes of the show over and over again. The stories never get old to me because he tells them so well.

I think I’m an alright storyteller, but the thing is this: I have a good enough ear for good stories to know that my own are nowhere near as good as I want them to be. They’re nowhere near as good as they could be.

That’s why this two-minute clip from Ira Glass on Storytelling resonates with me. Are you a creator of something? Do you know enough about your field to know that your work isn’t there yet — but that it could be?

Check out this video clip. Ira might give you just the inspiration you need to keep moving forward when you feel like quitting — when you aren’t as good as you could be.

Thanks to my good friend Tamar at Tamar Wallace Photography for sharing this video with me this week!
