Here’s a thought for your Monday morning, courtesy of author/illustrator extraordinaire Eric Rohmann:

The Beatles only kept 3% of what they did. If you listen to all their released music, it totals about ten hours of finished product, compared to over 400 hours of takes. That doesn’t even count rehearsals.

“The majority of what you do is going to be crap.” But it’s part of the process that gets you to that finished product. Give yourself permission to suck first.
