My Final Words Of The Week
There’s a lot of talk about the brilliance of Bo Burnham’s incredibly creative Netflix special he produced by himself in his house during the pandemic.
But that didn’t come out of nowhere. He’s been refining his unique perspective and talent for decades.
For example, 10 years ago he made this.
And 15 years ago he was a kid in his room making this.
Creative breakthroughs don’t come from nowhere.
They come from years of putting in the work.
Have a great week!
