“Thanks to the Inner Editor’s merciless second guessing, most of our artistic output ends up tentative and truncated, doomed to be abandoned at the first sign that the results are anything short of brilliant.
…The fear of doing things imperfectly turns what should be fun, creative endeavors into worrisome tasks.” (pp. 106-107)
It’s time to park that editor on the sidelines, walk the other direction, and don’t look back…at least not until after 11.30.14.
Seriously, gotta let go of perfectionism, elitism and inhibitions.
