This is a fantastic commentary by Ira Glass (an award winning radio producer) about the power of editing. He has amazing stories and in my hours and hours in the car I often find myself leaning closer and closer to my ipod in anticipation of what's going to happen next. It really makes me wonder why in the past I pushed some projects so hard when deep down I knew that I should have killed the idea right off the bat. If it doesn't feel right, kill it. This leaves more room for better stories, projects, etc. to emerge and for one to be even more creative and get out of the toxic cycle of being mediocre.
