Feeling frustrated? Here's how to engage it!

Frustration finds all of us at times.  Frustration isn't a sign that things aren't working, it's actually a sign that you're on the right path.  Frustration exists because we have taste.  When we see what can be in our business and we see where it is, we get frustrated.  If we see the gap as a failure then we quit, and someone else fills in the space.  But if we learn to live with frustration, and use it with a growth mindset incredible things can happen.

“All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you…”
