Rather than going into this and saying “this an iterative process, where every time I do something my primary metric is growth and learning”, most people go into it and their primary metric is this must succeed. Very often it doesn’t, like “the dream outcome that I had is the outcome I’m actually experiencing.” When it doesn’t hit that people look at the entire investment as a failure and they get dejected rather than looking at it and saying “I’m in this because something deeper inside of me is calling to be in this. I have a sense for what I want to be capable of creating and I’m open to the possibility that this will likely take me years if not decades. It’s the classic Ira Glass quote. You develop that sense of taste long before you develop the capability to produce on the level of that taste. – Jonathan Fields
