Frozen By Limitations (GWTW709)

I’ve had the concept of limitations on my mind recently. As a creator working in several mediums, I’m firmly aware of my limitations. I try to work within my limitations and sometimes use strict parameters to influence my creativity. But as I work with other creators to produce and edit their work, I see another side of limitations. What can be freeing and flowing for one quickly freezes another into the most beautiful statue. Perfectionism, procrastination, imposter syndrome, comparison, all the sins afflicting the modern creative ravage the mind, spurring the question: “What is the right thing to do?” I will explore this idea of limitations and see if I can’t melt away some of the ice that holds us back.

Five ways to be frozen by limitations:

  1. How do I come up with original content to share on this new social media platform?
  2. How long should I make my film, podcast, newsletter, or book?
  3. What if I’m inconsistent and people lose faith in me as a content creator?
  4. What if my self-imposed limitation is perceived by a client as a lack of experience?
  5. What if my actual limitations prevent me from doing what I want to do?
