Play bad notes and rhythms.
Write bad blogs.
Publish poor podcasts.
Do all the creative stuff you wanna do so that you see what’s good and what isn’t. Nothing is going to get better unless you’re working through the bad ideas as well.
Create through the bad ideas. I’ve played drums on about 6 albums. There are some really bad tracks and moments. This year, I’m recording a live album. I’m more confident recording BECAUSE of the previous bad performances.
I’ve posted over 300 blogs. Many of them aren’t very good. But they’re getting better and I’m weeding out bad ways of writing, bad themes to focus on, and better ways to frame ideas.
