If you are having a hard time getting a project started, try getting the ball rolling by giving yourself permission to do it badly. It sounds counterintuitive but this can take the pressure off, speeding up your decision-making process and letting you get into action.
This will not only make it much easier to begin, but you’ll also find that you’re completing tasks much more quickly than before. More often than not, you’ll also discover that you’re not doing it that badly after all – even if you are, you can always edit it afterwards.
Using “do it badly” as a motto gives you the courage to try new things, adds a little fun to everything, and stops you worrying too much about the outcome. It’s about doing it badly today and improving as you go. Ultimately, it’s about liberation.
