Feeling jaded? Take a 15 minute Samuel Beckett break

If you are wondering why you bother, why you even try to choose words that maybe someone else might want to read or hear someday; or pick up a paintbrush when you already know it’s impossible to transfer the image in your head to canvas; or make music that allows other people to feel what you feel now, at this precise moment; take a deep breath and a dose of Samuel Beckett.
Trust me, you’re in safe hands: the late great Alan Rickman, Kristen Scott Thompson and Juliet Stevenson are directed by Anthony Minghella. This 15 minutes will stay with you a lifetime.

And remember what Beckett had to say about the creative process:

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.”
