    For ALL beginners who are frustrated

    I have this as my background and I thought I'd share it with the community.
    I've been striving everyday to increase my knowledge of producing for over a year now,
    which is just the tip of the iceberg in comparison to the journey I intend to make.

    Anyways, here is an inspirational picture and message to all you unsatisfied, frustrated creative people out there.

    Truth, great message!

    I think the most satisfying part is looking back at the stuff you've made and realizing how much you've improved. I often listen to the tracks I made two years ago when starting out and it lends a little motivation. I also laugh at how bad it was.

    I don't think the gap ever closes, but it certainly gets narrower.
    First melodic D&B track ever

    Good points over there. "Do a lot of work!" So true. Professionalism is 1 % creativity and 99% hard work.

    It's true. Having a good ear and hearing your own mediocre music can be a block if you let it.

    This image and "The Gap" idea has been getting a lot of publicity lately - and rightfully so! It's an incredibly powerful and important message that is not spoken about often enough. It's also one of those things that can be "forgotten" once you get to a more comfortable stage in your development, which makes it even harder for people to understand it.

    Here's a great, short video on The Gap by Ira Glass where I originally watched this idea.

    For those that enjoy this image, it's worth the quick watch.

    Very inspirational picture indeed. It is definitely more inspiring than e.g. the statement from a famous pianist: "When the ambition is greater than the talent, failure will result" (I think it was Pressler who said that).

    Couple quotes come to mind...

    "How do you get to Carnegie hall? Practice, practice, practice"

    "Practice slow, learn fast"
