The Problem with Experience

Mar 7, 2008

I’ve been blogging for almost a year now. 10 months or so, I think. And the problem I’m starting to face is, that as I gain more experience, I start critiquing myself more. I start thinking (or over-thinking) whether I should write the post. I start wondering about how much value I’m adding (if any). And too often, it hinders me from writing. Same thing happens in my songwriting.

The problem with experience is that you know what can go wrong. You’re more aware of what is wrong. And as such, you’re less likely to just do something. It’s a problem I know. But something I still haven’t managed to overcome.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
