Will You Make It If You Fake It?

We've all heard the ancient secret advice to fake it until you make it. I first heard it about thirty years ago in a twelve-step meeting. I remember then thinking it was brilliant. Now, not so much.

The creative process doesn't give wiggle room for fakery. It requires real time, dedication, attention, and effort. That can't be faked. In this Coffee Break, Franklin Taggart tells a story of a particular FITYMI moment that lives on in his short list of public embarrassments almost thirty years after it happened.

Also in the chat:

** Courage first

** Confidence later

** commitment, learning, and mastering in between
