“Paul Valery said a poem is never completed—it is only abandoned. I am used to this sentiment, as I work in the theater where we begin again every night from zero, from the darkness, and tell the whole story anew. I found it surprising and inspiring how strongly everyone at TAL embodies this sentiment—I’ve never worked with artists in another medium who believe this as much as I do. They edited right down to the wire, tweaking and evaluating, checking and rechecking, until minutes before the final deadline, which is amazingly close to when several radio stations transmit the show on Friday nights. If you want radio that tastes like theater, remember the next time you listen to the TAL livestream that the show was probably being worked on even an hour earlier. ”
If you haven’t heard the This American Life episode “Mr. Daisey and the Apple Factory”, it is absolutely worth a listen.

“When you’re in design school, it’s so easy to do good work. You want to do good work. Your teachers want you to do good work and that’s pretty much it. But it’s also completely unrealistic, because you don’t have to deal with budgets or clients.
When you come out of school you have to convince people that you have good ideas so they will give you money to do stuff. A big part of this is knowing your own weaknesses and then identifying and partnering with people that can help you accomplish your goals.”

“My biggest revelation in terms of self-sufficiency is this: It is no big deal. You can tell yourself anything is too difficult, or you can just do it. And you do not need to reconstruct your worldview or take issue with others. You just need to be hungry.”
