Your job as a creator is to take as many of the wrong turns as necessary, without giving up hope, until you find the path that leads to your destination. It doesn’t matter if you’re a model maker, a potter, a dancer, a programmer, a writer, a political activist, a teacher, a musician, a milliner, whatever. It’s all the same. Making is making, and none of it is failure. It is an iterative process. It is how you learn new skills. It is how you gain knowledge and experience. It’s how you improve yourself. It is how you make new things. And the key to it all is tolerance. Both literal and figurative.
