Inspiration - Ira Glass

I have heard this bit from Ira Glass a few different places. It's from an interview he did on creative storytelling. I love this video and how David Shiyang Liu takes his inspirational words and, well, does something creative with them! (found over at my blog crush Bedlam of Beefy):

I think hearing this has meant a lot to many creatives. I know it has meant a lot to me. My blog is new and though I work hard on it, it's not anywhere near what I want it to be or what I imagine it could be. The bottom line is that I need to just keep creating. No matter what. As long as it means something to me, I will push forward. And hopefully, someday, it will be something that does look like what I intended. Are you creating something? How do you stay motivated, or keep from giving up when things don't quite turn out the way you hoped?
