I’m sure I’m not alone in being guilty of checking my phone on a semi-regular basis. Although I have tried to significantly reduce the number of apps I have on my phone, I am an avid podcast and music listener which means I constantly have headphones in my ears. And therefore I’m rarely ever bored.
Give yourself permission to put your work out there without holding back. Once you stop trying to be perfect, you will be surprised at how much work you can actually get done. You will be a lot more productive and content with yourself. You will happier and more relaxed. Your approach to creative work will be different.
As your vision for yourself expands, you realize you have to make certain adjustments. You need to cut-back on spending all of your money and time on crap and entertainment. You have to save more, and invest more in your education and your future.
