Most everybody I know who does interesting creative work…went through a period of years…where they could tell what they were making wasn’t what they wanted it to be. Everybody goes through that…The most important thing you can do is do a lot of work…and eventually [the work] you do will live up to your ambitions.

It’s also a bit reassuring that Peabody Award winning Ira Glass has that “like, you know” filler word speaking quirk that I just can’t seem to shake. It is possible to say “like” too often and still be well respected!
