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. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this.

I don't know about this. It seems like the thing hipster/yuppie shitheads who are DESPERATE to be creative and wise tell themselves to make them feel better for their utter lack of original thought coupled with their outrageous egos.

Kind of the way the Scientology appeals to people who are already convinced that they are special and powerful.
