Creative work is tough. Best to go in with a sober, open mind and not be blinded by high aspirations. I think I've said before on this site, I used to get more excited at the beginning of a project. Now I get more excited in the middle, when the work is happening and it isn't just talk. Some people do like the talk, just how it is. That is a needed part of any creative project, it’s just not where I like to be. Ask questions, think critically, and do not get whisked away by utopian visions. Instead, take those visions and figure out how to make them a reality. After all, for any creative, that is the job.
