Had not known about Jack Conte, though I've grown plenty of duds myself. Always hid them, while keeping up appearances with a traditional, 'stable' job, which ate up so much of me, it's little wonder creative endeavours flopped.
For the first time ever, I'm fully throwing myself at the wall, hoping I'll stick. Scary af. But today you remind us that failures will layer in among the successes. Not if, but when they happen, we gotta stay the course. We must let our grit determine our path, rather than fear. So needed to hear this. Lyle, thank you. Sending much love, hope and strength.
I feel like I fail sometimes when I prioritize work over doing something with my kids. It’s a balance many of us have to face, but I’m working toward delegating or delaying the work stuff in favor of a family moment more often.

Loved the video! Resonates strongly. Thanks for sharing.
And I hope you are getting a chance to recharge a bit ❤️
Such a great video! Love everything about your rawness. The "Not-trying/trying" thing is perfection (( mean that as a compliment)
You are right, we all do feel like that sometimes Lyle. Most of us will never unsubscribe or feel frustrated with your rant. We understand. We have been there too.
