Ira Glass on creative work

I think this little piece of advice on creative work is also applicable to those of us in research. Your work at first may not live up to your ambitions. Just keep working. Not all of your work will be good, in fact not all of it will be publishable. But write it all up and keep going.

It's the volume of work, the persistent effort, the 10,000 hours, that makes the difference between someone who tried and someone who succeeded.
