In this age of information abundance and overload, those who get ahead will be the folks who figure out what to leave out, so they can concentrate on what’s really important to them. Nothing is more paralyzing than the idea of limitless possibilities. The idea that you can do anything is absolutely terrifying.
The way to get over creative block is simply to place some constraints on yourself. It seems contradictory, but when it comes to creative work, limitations mean freedom … Don’t make excuses for not working—make things with the time, space, and materials you have, right now.
