Making films is all about—as soon as you’re finished—continually regretting what you’ve done. When we look at films we’ve made, all we can see are the flaws[…] So unless I start working on a new one, I’ll never be free from the curse of the last one.

Hayao Miyazaki

Applies to all art and creative endeavors, really.

I think it’s essential to fuck up. I think of failure as latent success. Any experience in life is neutral. You can tint it as a piece of learning or you tint it as a piece of misinformation.
