Takeaways1. You begin to realize you’re limiting your options and every positive choice that you make to do something means there are other things you don’t get to do.2. Do what you can to quiet the internal voices that tell you you’re not very good at this and say, “thank you for your opinion, we can have this discussion another time” and just go to work.3. Make the thing you need to make and then do it again and show up tomorrow and do it again and show up the next day and do it again.4. It’s so much easier to keep showing up once I realized that it’s never going to get easier, that it wasn’t a problem I had, that it’s not inherent in me, it’s just that a creative life is hard.5.
