Quotes:

“The only way the good ideas came is when you just had a litany of bad ones. And the confidence only comes after realizing that one or ten or literally thousands of failures won’t define you.” [13:54]

“I think as creatives, we are scared of feeling all the things, but that’s also when we produce our best work.” [15:50]
