Just f*cking start
It’s crazy to think about how many talented folks are out there sitting on ideas. It’s also crazy to realize how many world class art and design is out there in the ether - just waiting to be created. Starting is like this impossible idea. Some tend to avoid it. They overthink it. They over prepare for it. They over exaggerate it. They simply make it bigger than it is.
Even in exercise, most say they enjoy it once they start - but, most don’t start often enough. Even knowing that you like it during the exercise, and knowing that you feel great after the exercise, and knowing that it’s good for you in the long run is not enough to get you going and get you started.
I don’t know what the solution is besides being more head strong and more focused. Perhaps thinking less can help some people. Go into robot mode. Schedule it and get going - doesn’t matter if you’re in the mood or if you’re able or if you’re tired. You start something. Just fucking start it, and see where it goes.
This series of content is a small experiment. I pledged to create a piece of content on my site for the next 365 days. You can read the opening post here. The posts aren’t limited to thoughts or ideas, they’re really just a way for me to create original content. If you got any feedback/questions, please reach out. Thanks for looking.
