Create bad content and put it out into the world. Okay, try your best of course, but don’t let the idea of perfection hold you back.
When you’re just starting out, done is better than perfect. And if you’re the type of person to analyze what you do so much that it limits your ability to deliver, then you need to get over that… quickly.
The world isn’t perfect, and your creations won’t be either. Especially in the beginning. But you will have time to make things better. With time and consistency, you’ll start seeing the results you intend. Plus, nobody will even notice you in the beginning anyway.
Publishing is the only way to get past the fear of creating. Like all things, creating takes practice. It’s a skill. And even though we can all communicate with words, some are better at it than others.
When you first start out, your writing will be poor. But what isn’t poor on your first attempt? Imagine you gave up trying to speak because you couldn’t do it well. Or you stopped trying to walk after falling a few times. What would you be capable of today?
We all need to swallow our pride when it comes to publishing work that we create. It doesn’t matter what it is, we are going to be bad at it at first. But despite that, we need to publish our work.
Try it and be willing to risk looking foolish in front of others. Be vulnerable. Ship your work. Let it sit for a while. Reflect. Then get better at it, with practice.
