Creators start making things because we have great taste.
But at the outset our creations aren’t as good as our taste. This leads many to stop creating.
Ira Glass described it as the taste gap. Virgil Abloh shared, at his Columbia lecture, the key to close the gap is “putting out bad work”.
Your mindset impacts how you respond to life.
One cool Harvard study showed if we focus on one thing with our full attention, other seemingly obvious possibilities can go unnoticed.
The brain can only absorb a limited amount. So if your focus says something is impossible, your mind will ignore contradicting thoughts.
Because of that a scarcity mindset sees limitations where an abundance mindset sees opportunities.
