On Experimenting as You Move Forwards in Life

This post has an audio story too. Catch a breeze:

 I see a lot of creative people are getting stuck in thinking that in order for me to do something, I need to have all of this training and diplomas and figure things out and plan things out.

You kind of get into this circle of wanting to be perfect before you actually just go out into the world and do your thing. So my recommendation is to stop thinking and stop putting yourself in a box. I’m not against getting more knowledge and improving yourself. I think that has to go always in parallel to doing your thing. But that should not be the blocker for you to experiment in even small ways as you’re building up your thing, whatever that is.

Just jump into the water and start swimming and see how far you can go with the skills and the capacity you have. You can always go back to the shore, figure things out afresh and go back in. Don’t stop yourself from moving forward by putting this barrier in front of yourself that it has to be perfect in all possible ways. It’s never going to be perfect. You’re going to figure things out along the way and things unfold. And the process of creation is that kind of experiment. 

Kind of experiment and let life bring you what needs to come your way as you’re creating. I mean, that’s the most natural and the most beautiful process that there is. And the result of it would always be the most beautiful format that’s original and that’s authentic. So don’t put yourself into boxes that every other people have created. Do your thing, figure things out along the way. It’s not going to be perfect, and that’s fine. You’re going to do it better next time. Just keep on going. Okay, cheers.
