One of the first lessons I learned when I started this blog was to let go of my perfectionism. If I hadn't, I wouldn't have been able to post a single article. If you want everything to be perfect, you won't come up with anything at all. You have to accept the fact that you will create some garbage along the way. But, don't worry. You'll create some masterpieces as well.
Here's what entrepreneur and travel photographer, James Clear, has to say:
"You can’t predict your own success. Scientists, artists, inventors, writers, entrepreneurs, and workers of all types are equally likely to produce a useless project as they are to produce an important one.
Because you can’t predict your success, the best strategy is to produce as much work as possible, which will provide more opportunities to hit the bullseye and create something meaningful.
Creative genius only reveals itself after you’ve shown up enough times to get the average ideas out of the way.
Sometimes you’ll create something good. Sometimes you’ll create something useless. But no matter what, you should always be creating.
If you want to make a masterpiece, you have to be willing to create a little garbage along the way."
