Creating Your Own Stuff (GWTW65)

Nothing is more difficult for creative professionals and entrepreneurs than creating your own stuff: websites, promotional materials, branding, you name it. In this episode of Getting Work To Work, I talk about avoiding perfectionism, the importance of applying your own process to your work, and the need for accountability. I also share six ways to get over the hurdles of making your own stuff.

Six Ways To Get Over the Hurdles of Creating Your Own Stuff

  1. Make it good enough and be okay with that.
  2. Follow your own process and stick with it. Get it done and move on.
  3. Seek an objective voice who will give you feedback and hold you accountable.
  4. Expect change since you are growing in your abilities, delivering new value, and refining your skills.
  5. If you are still struggling, it might be time to pay another creative professional to do the work for you.
  6. Remember who your audience is. It’s most likely not you.
