Perfectionism can limit your creative fuels. The fear of failure can be crippling, and the pressure to execute consistently can paralyze you from trying at all. To help combat this, try making a list of 10 ways you can do any specific thing unsuccessfully.
The idea is to find ways to do something incorrectly, on purpose, in order to get your ideas flowing and remove your self-judgment. You are intentionally making a list of rough drafts, instead of stressing about any of those thoughts being perfect. We only become good at things after failing at them repetitively.
This was recorded live at a Financial Freedom workshop in the San Francisco Bay Area. This, and other workshops, are put on by Motion, which offers online and in-person events on money, mental health, and self-awareness.
