Creative Encouragement

Allow your creative output to be woefully inadequate to the task of expressing the glory within you. Just let it out. Create. Do not judge it.

Step back, breathe. Create again.

Again, do not judge. But this time let yourself examine, be aware of, adapt and respond to what you've created.

Call it creative evolution. Call it drafting. Call it whatever lets you off the hook of perfectionism and back onto the page, canvas, dance floor, or spreadsheet.

(Yes, spreadsheet. Even data analysis and the so-called "hard sciences" involve creative problem solving.)
