wow. great article. thanks so much for posting.

i was particularly convicted when reading this portion:
Quote
"talent" is often a story we tell ourselves to justify our own failure or to protect children from the possibility of failure.

It's much easier (albeit more painful in the long-term) for me to just assume that others have "it" and I don't, rather than just practicing and enjoying my time with music.

keep em coming.

Thank you, this is good stuff.  A lot of the same thoughts I have had but this is worded so well.

Great article! It's sometimes tough to remember when you see amazingly young producers such as Madeon, but like in his case he started when he was 11!
