Forget the 1 in a million prodigies. The rest of us strive every day just to be good. Forgive yourself your humanity & get on with your work. There’s so much to accomplish within ourselves in the process of building. This is the important work.
As my old friend Bogy said to me years ago, “You don’t make the work. The work makes you.”
