This is a bit of a different (and short) post. It's a recommendation for a Sunday afternoon.

The "Last of Us – Part 2" is one of the most celebrated (and likely hated) games ever released, and a masterpiece in my opinion. Naughty Dog – the game studio behind it – just released a documentary about it. It's a must watch, even if you don't care about games. It's a raw and honest depiction of how much passion and persistence is required to create at that level of excellence.

Any creative endeavor comes with a 'staring at the abyss' moment. And as you do, you need an unwavering faith that something great will come out of your effort, while being open to deal with uncomfortable setbacks along the way. Watching this was a good reminder of what Jim Collins calls "Confronting the Brutal Facts" in innovation.
