You have a dream that you would like to conquer. It is a pretty big dream that sometimes keeps you awake at night. In fact, it is so big that many people think you do not have what it takes to reach that dream.
Of course, you would like for it to be great, but what if is only good. Let’s take that a little bit further. What if it is not good enough? What if you pour your heart and soul into your dream and come up short in the end? What if, in the eyes of everyone around you, you fall flat on your face? What then?
Well, here is a little secret for you. Good is good enough.
It doesn’t matter what your dream is, you need to start on it now.
Move past whatever it is that is holding you back. Maybe your project is merely sitting on your hard drive instead of being out there for the world to see. Well, it is now time to finish it and have it published.
Don’t sit there and worry about if it is good enough or not. You are not alone. Everyone I have ever met in the industry has had the same fears when it comes to film and video making.
When you create something out of nothing, you want it to be perfect. Each of us works towards our vision, and we want to do everything possible to make that vision a reality. As creators, it is in our nature to keep trying new things, then to experiment with them again and again. We dream of what may come and the possibilities our visions my bring.
Don’t let this keep you stalling, though.
The best way to learn is to share and talk about your work. When you take action, you learn more about yourself, your craft, and what you want to do for your career. But, first, you have got to get out there and make it happen. Don’t overthink the process. Because good is good enough.
