Why is it, that some creative professionals seem to struggle more than others, when completing an important project?
When we look at the most successful creative professionals, we usually find that they are no more creative or intelligent than their less prolific counterparts.
However, they are different in one important respect: They look at their work in a very different way. They have discovered the importance of breaking large or daunting creative projects down, into manageable, achievable chunks.
Think about this for a moment.
- No one writes a book.
- No one composes a symphony.
- No one develops a software package.
Instead, they write a little every day. They compose a little every day. They code a little every day. As a result, they don’t feel overwhelmed. They just do a little every day. And every day they move closer to completing their next creative project.
Chunk your project down. Commit to doing a little, often. When you do, you’ll never be daunted by the size or scale of a creative project again.
