Something I’ve been struggling with a lot lately is giving myself permission to create and just put stuff out there for others. My main goal is to put stuff out there so that I can use it for myself days, months, or even years from now. And, for my grandchildren to enjoy and learn from long after I’m gone.
So what’s my problem? ME! I get in my own way. ALL THE TIME! I suffer from what some people call “Paralysis by Perfection.”
When I post something, I want it to be perfect. I know what you’re thinking. “If you’re putting it out there for yourself, then why are you worried about what others think?”
Subconsciously, and even consciously at some level, I get stuck knowing others will see it.
Well, the other day I stumbled upon a YouTube video of Ethan Hawke and it is exactly what I need to hear.
