This is an Ira Glass quote translated into a beautiful typographic poster by designer Sawyer Hollenshead. You know, this is how I feel everyday. You see amazing designers (including former classmates, colleagues, and friends) produce all this awesome work and you just can’t help but compare what you’ve accomplished to what they’re doing with seemingly effortless competence.
You know the quality of work you want to do, and knowing you’re not quite there yet can be the most frustrating thing in the world. You know you can do better. I think…this ultimately is a good thing. A little drive and personal ambition can go a long way.
At least I know I’m not alone in this feeling. Gotta get better. Gotta get to work.
