Text 14 Aug fear of fearlessness

Getting ready for a major trade show this weekend. First time I did it, I was so stressed out I broke out in hives. This is my fourth time doing it and now I’m stressed out that I might not be stressed out enough.

Contrary to the famous FDR quote, sometimes my greatest fear is lack of fear itself.

Text 14 Aug 2 notes Wrong Now Right Later

Some people think that the best work is created by starting with the best ideas, materials, and plans; and then exectuing on them.

Other people think that the best work is created by doing a lot of work and making improvements on your ideas, materials, and plans with each new project that you complete.

Of course both views are correct but incomplete. Without the opposing view to temper each approach, you end up with a torrent of weak work which never improves, or you end up with procrastination and deleusions of grandeur.

Usually you can’t tell whether or not a project is going to be any good until you actually do it. Sometimes the best-laid plans, executed flawlessly, don’t turn out to be quite as cool in real life as they seemed in your head. Sometimes the most half-assed slapped together last-minute project can result in something amazing which you never would have been able to dream up and design ahead of time on your own. It’s almost always better to err on the side of doing something “wrong” now rather than “right” later, because you can still do it “right” later even if you did it “wrong” now.

Shitty work is forgotten. Great work is remembered forever. Therefore go ahead and make as much shitty work as you want to because there are no consequences.
