One day, you will be dead. Each year that passes after your death, fewer and fewer people will remember who you were, what you did or what your face looked like. Eventually, you’ll be completely forgotten. Who cares if that side project you put out sucked or not. Might as well put it out there and see what people think. There’s a good chance too that the project won’t even be remembered even by the time you die. The best way to get experience is to do things, so given that no one is going to remember, might as well try to do it. Your successes won’t be remembered along with your failures.
