Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

Here’s A Revelation

It doesn’t matter where you start.

If you’re creative, it’s easy to question yourself before you even get started. Whether you mean to or not, you’re setting yourself up for failure right out of the gate.

You know the questions I’m talking about – “Is this really a good idea?

Here’s a news flash: they’re all good ideas. It’s your artistic sensibility that will make it good – not where you start.

What I am trying to say here is this: If you want to compose a piece of music, write a story, sculpt, paint, or whatever – don’t waste time waiting for the “good” ideas, because you will doom yourself to fail before you even get going.

Instead, just start with anything.

Who you are and what you have to say will come through no matter what. So where you start is irrelevant, because you will always start at the beginning.

Whatever you end up with is you.

Don’t be afraid of that.
