"...YOU CANNOT CONTROL WHAT PEOPLE LIKE ABOUT WHAT YOU MAKE. You make stuff, and you’re going to like certain things, but you can’t predict what other people will like. So even if you make something and you think it sucks, put it out there. Maybe people will hate it, maybe they’ll ignore it, or maybe they’ll like it. But just put it out there."
I've made similar statements this year, especially this one on sharing work that sucks (which interestingly is the second most popular post on my blog.) While I totally agree with him, it is very hard to do. It's one of those things that I thought would get easier over time but it really hasn't. I find that I have to put myself on autopilot for it. I take a photo and post it; no thinking about it. And then it baffles me even more when people 'like' it. Often the posts and photos and drawings that get the most reaction from people are not the ones that I feel strongly about. You can't control it and you can't predict it.
An interesting extra to it is his idea that:
"...most people give talks about "how to win the lottery," when what they should really be encouraging people to do is "buy more lottery tickets."
Keep on making. Keep on sharing. Each time it's a lottery ticket.
