Perfection is the #1 Creativity killer!


We all have crazy and amazing ideas, everyone has them. The typical answer that most will give you when asking why they didn't start their dream project yet is this: I'm still perfecting the idea/equipment. Failure is a scary thing to us, that's why we want to be ready, we want to be perfect! But can we really be?

The answer will greatly depend on what do YOU consider perfect. People's acceptance? Your own acknowledgment? The financial benefit? There will be many answers but none of that matter because in order to achieve the so-called perfection you will have to actually create and publish the unperfect!

Forget the perfection and start your craft

The first step is always the hardest and the longer you think and plan the less chance you will actually end up doing anything. I started creating from an early age and just recently good my very first start in writing. My hesitation and planning took away an early opportunity at creating a YouTube channel because you know, it isn't perfect.

What I'm trying to say is; start now and perfect later. No big project came out perfect in its first version and you are no exception. Start now and work your way to the top as you discover new ideas and remove what's not working. People will never find you unless your work is published and is out.

Keep Going

Very few make it big overnight and it is mostly about luck and the right timing. The rest of the world like me and you should continue moving forward while pushing constant content and rework your tactics and style every now and then. Publishing one material and expecting to go big will most likely never get you anywhere, let alone big.

Sure, there will be times where you will simply give up and let it go, but the key is to withstand these moments and get back o track. If it was easy, everyone would do it.

Create constantly

Another hard lesson I learned is to keep the content coming. People want constant creations and will not have the patience to hold out when you're ready. I'm not talking about publishing every day but going into hiding for months or weeks will only distance you from the potential opportunities.

Had I not taken a long break from writing, I would have been at a much higher place with more content under my belt.

So stop planning and start creating.
