Releasing Creative Frequently or to “Perfection” What’s Better?

March 2, 2020

Solo episode today, super digestible and quick. Today we talk about something I see in myself and others everyday. As creators whether you make music, art, run a business, or create content there is always a battle between releasing content consistently verses slowly but “perfect”. If your a perfectionist, great….but perfection is the enemy of creating. Art isn’t perfect, and to make great art you need to make it A LOT. 

Create and release consistently and make it as perfect as you can in the timeframe you set. We can’t get feedback or be what we want if we aren’t doing and showing what we do. Let’s dive into some of the rational and irrational ways we look at how often we release our ideas.
