The secret of living a creative life is (drum roll) to start living a creative life. Start. Do it. Begin. Now. That’s it. You just have to do it. I was listening today to an interview with Brandon Stanton (of Humans of New York) and they asked the classic question, “If you could go back in time to before you were successful, what would you tell yourself?” His response, “Just start doing it. Don’t wait for perfect.” He talked about the fact that we can spend so much time preparing or waiting for the opportune moment that we never actual start. Even if what you start doing is bad at first, the fact that you started is the most important element. By the time you get to be successful the work you’re doing most likely won’t look anything like the “perfect” you were imagining.
