On Creativity and Excellence (and patience)

Allow me to encourage you creative types to check out Creativity, Excellence…and Patience at Justin Taylor’s blog:

If you want to become really good at your vocation and profession—and if you’re a Christian, you should—then I would encourage you to watch this clip below from Ira Glass (“This American Life”), then to read the excerpt from an interview with Thomas Lake (Sports Illustrated). Both are operating at the highest levels of excellence at their craft, and both offer similar counsel on how to get there.

I found the accompanying video particularly interesting – much more so than the written article. But I see how it applies directly to my interests in music and in photography, and even in things that may not be “creative” – or at least aren’t arts.
