Show Your Work

It’s not good enough,

It’s not really finished yet, 

It’s not where I want it to be, 

I don’t think it would be interesting to you, 

I didn’t do much for it, 

I didn’t spend enough time on it yet, 

All the excuses we create in thinking that our work isn’t worthy of being seen in its non-finished stages shields us from having to interact with others. 

On the other hand, as we run away from showing our work, we stop ourselves from opening up to different perspectives, being challenged, and creating a stronger, more diverse project. 

Keep showing your work to others with the goal of improving, getting more feedback, to reinforce your weak points, and know your strong ones. 



On Personal Weakness

Bigger, more authoritative, dominant voices telling you how to do things might make us feel as if we’re living our lives incorrectly. 

Often awkward and unwelcome. 

This is all to say that these are the best moments to know yourself. To know how you respond towards authoritative figures (my personal weakness) is a key stepping stone to getting over the awkwardness.
