The fear of being vulnerable was one barrier I had deal with when I started blogging. Then, I had to change my mind about vlogging. As I try to figure out the vlogging vs. blogging thing, I appreciate how much easier it is to talk on video that it is to write. Yeah, it is easier, at least for me, is to waffle on video than in writing. So, in this video, where I can’t decided what to talk about I talk about not being able to decide what to talk about. A helpful one when it comes to inspiration, creativity, innovation and productivity. Check it out
One of the challenges of publishing, or more specifically in this context, blogging, is creating content. I’ve never been a fan of creating content for the sake of it. As I’ve said in the past, here, here and here, writing and blogging have been primarily notes-to-self. Blogging has been a way for me share my failures and wrestle with ideas and various issues.
It takes work to change the world. Do not believe the naysayers who say you cannot change the world. There are too many examples of people whose impact on history and humanity are clear. World change is possible. It may not be instant or in one area.
It is heretics who changed history. Their seemingly isolated impact in areas of their discipline, such as the arts, eventually spilled over into other areas. Today we celebrate their work as masterpieces. They are likely to have not felt like they were creating masterpieces at the time but that is what we celebrate them as today.
it does not matter what discipline you lead in; work at it, potential to change the world is not restricted to one discipline
Sometimes masterpieces are created unawares. Thus, you must never undermine your work. Your present area of influence and the world still needs your work to make it greater.
On the other hand, sometimes we are aware that we are creating masterpieces as we work. Yeah yeah… Everyone thinks his or her work is a masterpiece. If you are giving all you can, with what you have, where you are, to make a greater change then you are creating masterpieces.
Sometimes heretics, in their bid to change the world, are overwhelmed by a sense that their work is a masterpiece. There are times when this happen that they fear to ship or publish their work.
No matter how hard you work or how well you pay attention to the detail in your work, it will never make a difference until you ship it. You have to release the things you work for them to make any difference.
Don’t be afraid to give your best for the fear of only accomplishing one great feat. Don’t be afraid you will only create one masterpiece. So what if you only make one significant contribution to humanity?! The important thing is to allow yourself every attempt, in every opportunity to make the world a greater place.
Don’t be afraid to put out your work because it might the only great thing you’ll ever do… if it does… then you’ve done it… Rather not hold back and give something than die without having done so or live with could and should haves… Be bold. Be /ˈherətik/.
