The Mountain

Hello SlideBelts! We are about halfway through December now, which means we all are working our butts off trying to keep up with demand. Times like these are rife with some of our sweetest victories and our most bitter mistakes. There is a video of Neil Gaiman, my absolute favorite author, who touches on these subjects. In the video, Neil is giving a speech to art graduates about mistakes and how best to handle them. I don’t want to give too much away, since it is an amazing speech and I think everyone should check it out, but the main idea he presents is to make those mistakes, learn from those failures. Take things and make them your own. He says “When you start out on a career you have no idea what you are doing. People who know what they are doing know the rules, and know what is possible and impossible. You do not. And you should not.” I love this. Sometimes things happen outside of our control and sometimes our failures are our own. How ever they come to us, it is best to take things in stride and never lose sight of “the mountain.”
