What are you warming up for?
Super cool stuff?
Seth Godin says that “Real artist ship” (Linchpin). It’s so easy to get into warm up mode and teeter on the edge of creating super cool stuff. Taking the plunge is difficult. It is scary.
Some say it is the fear of failure that holds us up. Some say it’s the fear of success (you have to live up to the expectations and maintain it). Seth Godin states that it could be the fear of criticism (Tribes). He further explains that to be criticized you need to be worthy of remarking on. You have to be remarkable. Better to be noticed, to be criticized than never noticed.
So get out of your pajamas and be noticed.
