When I first began sharing my process, it was a low barrier to entry way of starting to post content.
I have a hit of the ol perfectionism... and when I started to think about posting content, that little voice inside my head started saying things like...
- You're going to need to get better if you're going to share things
- Why would anyone listen to you?
- There's so many better artists out there, how are you ever going to stand out
And on and on and on...
But, I loved the idea of the Feynman Technique and from the software space and away I went.
And by default, most of my content began to take the form of sharing my process, experiements and findings instead of me having to have a polished, finished set of ideas, phylosophies and 'tutorials'.
You'll never find me saying anything like:
"This is the way to do x" or "The only way to do 'y' is 'z'"
It's usually be phrased like
"This is what I found when doing x" or "When I did y, x happened, and I liked doing it that way because of z"
This allows me to:
- Have unlimited content because I'm always pushed to learn new things and share my findings in public
- Remove the 'perfectionism' voice because I'm just sharing what actually happened or something I found interesting. I'm not professing anything or saying this is THE way to do something
