We seem to want to do anything we can to avoid it, but when it finally comes it’s never that bad. I’m not thinking about anything specific here, just making a general observation.
For example, say you want to start a creative project – a song, short story, screenplay, painting, film, sculpture, blog, podcast, whatever. The more you keep thinking about it, the more imposing and scary it becomes. You become frozen with fear and self doubt, overwhelmed with questions. Why am I doing this? Can I do it? Will it suck? What if no one else cares about it? I don’t really know what the hell I’m doing…
Here’s the reality: all of your questions and fears are unimportant distractions, just complete and utter bullshit. You either do it or you don’t, it’s that simple. And if you do it, here’s how it works:
You sit down and start. Once you begin, the next step will present itself.
That wasn’t so hard, was it?
