Extra Credit on the #1 Lesson in Game Design

Came across this and thought to share it. It is so on point! And, you know, true of pretty much any creative endeavour in my opinion. No one is born good at anything. And whether or not there is such a thing as talent, one thing is for sure, those who create great things have large piles of not-so-great things they've created leading up to that greatness. As a life drawing teacher once said to me: If one out of a hundred of your drawings turns out good, then draw more and you'll have drawn more good drawings. Do this enough and you'll find that more and more of your drawings are good ones. I mean, I don't pretend that practice makes perfect, indeed only perfect practice makes perfect but you'll notice, even the amended version of the saying still prominently contains the word practice!
