Create Something Great

Are you working on something now and feeling the pain of the creation process? Let’s look into the way the emotional journey that most people go through when trying to create something great.

  1. This is the best idea ever!! — When you just concocted an idea and you’re excited by this new goal
  2. This will be fun — As you get started
  3. This is harder than I thought — When you start to really take the first few steps
  4. This is going to be a lot of work — As you get into the thick of things…
  5. This sucks I have no idea what I’m doing — When you realize that this is actually harder than you thought
  6. When you hit the point where you’ve invested way too much time/energy into this, and things aren’t turning out the way you want
  7. Ok but it still sucks — When you start to see some kind of result from your work so far…
  8. Quick, let’s call it a day and say we learned something — As you fluctuate between wanting to push through and being drained by past efforts
  9. Hmm… 
  10. Hey!
  11. Wow — #9 to #11: the creation process
  12. This is one of the things I am most proud of — Reaching the finishing line
