Do What You Can… (The Evolution of Ideas.)
This seems like really great advice. I admit, I suffer from a problem where I’m forever putting things off. I never feel ready, so I keep training. I buy more textbooks and teach myself new skills and yet I still don’t feel ready. It’s like in my mind I’ll never be good enough to do the things I really want despite the protests from my friends. I have many game and art ideas, but most of them never get started because I always feel like I need to do more planning. This reminds me of another article I read by James Clear, ‘Successful People Start Before They Feel Ready’ (http://jamesclear.com/successful-people-start-before-they-feel-ready.) I guess if we always put things off we may never get anywhere, and I reckon our skills will grow much more quickly if we push ourselves earlier on than waiting for when it feels right. This is a big issue for me, but it seems I’m not alone in struggling with this.
There is an idea, embodied in a quote that I recently read, which to my mind, is one of the most important and vital master keys to: living a life of joyeous productivity and achievement unhindered by unnecessary bullshit or false constraint.
It is an idea which has been battle tested by every single person throughout the whole of history, who has ever accomplished anything of significance.
It is fully timeless. It is the internal foundation and impetus for all action. It has been, and continues to be, of the greatest value in my own life.
Would you like to know what it is?…
