Week 190: What's Stopping You From Starting?


We have another Tuesday! It’s actually going to be cloudy with a chance of rain here in Tucson, and I’m loving it. It’s great. Rain brings some cooler weather, and that’s always a plus when you’re in the triple digits.

This week’s question is: what’s stopping you from starting?

Some creators, for whatever reason, get it in their heads that they have to get something completely perfect, or they have to have a complete understanding of a subject, before they are able to move forward and do the work. So they do a lot of studying, and they find more things to study and research, and they find other things to research and study, and so they fall down a rabbit hole called “getting ready.”

There are other creators who have a fear of failure, and that fear stops them from beginning anything they feel strongly about. Fear of failure is strong, and not easily overcome.

I think the only thing holding me back is the quality of my work, chances are I'll only get one shot to create a comic and I want it to be my best effort.

All the above plus a HUGE dose of too many irons in the fire...

Too many projects going at once to actually get one of them done. :-D Maybe I'll get lucky and they'll all get ready at the same time.
