Your Content Is Like Your Child… Let It Shine on Its Own!

Progress Over Perfection

As creatives, we tend to treat our work like our child. We nurture it the best we can and hope that it does well. But sometimes, we nurture it excessively and don’t let it shine on its own. We fear that the effort we put in may not be enough and our child may not be at its best. So we keep trying to make it better.

Does this sound like something you do? Well, I can totally relate. I experience that a lot of times. In fact, I’ve been going through that a lot recently, which is why I haven’t been posting as frequently as I used to.

So I thought I’d just whip open the editor and start hitting the keys till I produced another successful child for you guys. But before I was able to do that, I faced crippling thoughts about how the time needed to be right and my article needed to be great, etc. And that stopped me from even getting started.

But even once you begin, you’re faced with the Procrastination Monster that holds you back from completing your projects. And this big fella is controlled by a persistent tamer called Your Inner Critic. You know, that voice that critiques you about every little thing and settles for nothing less than perfection.

Why does life suddenly get so bleak?

Wither so easily to dusk and soggy eyes.

Why does the red of my cheeks
Get robbed by a hueless pale?

Why did the excitement I used to feel
Disintegrate into a pond of tears?

Let Death Inspire You

Steve Jobs

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.

Almost everything–all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure–these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. 

Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

– Steve Jobs

I came across this quote in a video talking about self-transformation. I’ve been a bit inactive on the blog because I’ve been trying to figure stuff out.

In the process, I found myself wondering about how I can develop myself further and this quote gave me an interesting perspective.

Fears and pride hold us back from pursuing our truest potential. But if we take a step back and look at the nature of life, we’ll realise how transient it really is.

1. In our lives we have had millions of experiences, both positive and negative. One almost inevitable one has to be having fallen at home as the floor was too slippery because our trusty slippers decided they did not want to give you a good grip. A hot glue gun that can be purchased at a stationery near you can save your bones from being damaged or even broken.
