💡It is better to write something imperfect than nothing at all. You may aim for perfection. Quality should a priority.
💡But if you constantly strive for perfection an unintended side effect is inaction. Seeking perfection can lead to a creativity clog.
💡A blocked mind makes it difficult to create content. The antidote?
💡Write something imperfect. You don’t have to publish it on your blog or social media channels. Save it in your notes or journal. The benefits of writing something unpublishable?
1️⃣ Helps remove the creativity clog—like a drain is blocked with crud, so too your mind needs crud removed to allow creativity to flow.
2️⃣ Builds consistency—write regularly. It’s like physical exercise. Writing something allows you to maintain a habit.
3️⃣ You have an opportunity to re-write your work later—the first draft is likely not going to be polished.
4️⃣ Develops humility—seeing my bad writing reminds me that I need to be humble and grateful that I am still a work in progress.
