Takeaway From Neil Gaiman’s MasterClass

Signing up for a full year of MasterClass has been all it was promised and then some. I started with the class by Margaret Atwood, then flew through James Patterson, Dan Brown, Shonda Rhimes, and Judd Apatow.

Every class has its own takeaways that resonate for me–the right words at the right time.

From Gaiman’s, it’s this message: You learn more from a finished failure than a finished success. And you learn nothing from a string of unfinished starts. Even if the story is terrible, even if you know it’s not quite working, finish it anyway so you can learn from it and move on.
