Yes, there are so many ways to get your ideas out. Even if we just think about the digital platforms, we have instagram, facebook, youtube, twitch, medium, clubhouse, twitter, etc. And if you even further down the platforms, that also opens up so many ways of doing things. Ex. Instagram posts, stories, reels, IG tv.
It has always been a challenge to pick, which then leads to frustration. I think the infinite possibilities is not entirely a boon.
So, what do we do? We zoom out. We get out of the mental battle and really define couple of things.
- Who are we trying to help?
- How are we planning to do that?
- How is it going to impact their lives?
It’s usually about them. If it’s for us, then it’s a hobby and we shouldn’t push ourselves too much if it doesn’t happen. But, if it’s a creative work, as Seth Godin said, it’s always about helping.
Side note: Even with sharp clarity about things, I have found myself stuck in the vicious cycle too. All it takes is to coming up with different ways to re-evaluate and refuel.
