On the Untalented - Oliver Burkeman (Tue 07 Oct 2014)

Gozo Ferry Window - Cirkewwa / Malta (Tue 23 Sep 2014)

Oliver Burkeman (*) writes on the Untalented (*):
The genuinely untalented [..] probably have no idea that they’re no good—because they’re too untalented to realize it. (This is the “Dunning-Kruger effect [..] ) In short: if you’re worried you don’t measure up, that could well be a sign that you do.
Maybe there is some hope:
The real trick to producing great work isn’t to find ways to eliminate the edgy, nervous feeling that you might be swimming out of your depth. Instead, it’s to remember that everyone else is feeling it, too. We’re all in deep water. Which is fine: it’s by far the most exciting place to be.
