Will it work?
Do you ever doubt yourself? Your skills? Your process? I have a hunch that you do. Why? Because we all do, even if it’s only from time to time.
We are all prone to asking questions that stem from doubt. Will it work? Have I done enough? Could I have done it better? Will they like it? These questions can often be far from constructive, but can we turn that around?
With JEANBAG going live soon, I’m both excited and full of doubt. In fact, all the questions I’ve written above, I’ve asked myself. I think the key is to not be afraid of the questions, but to ask them and pay attention to the answers. Will it work?—I don’t see why not. Have I done enough?—I can’t think of anything more I could have done with the time, skills and resources I had. Could I have done it better?—No, I’ve given it my absolute best. Will they like it?—Some people will, some won’t. I hope those who like it, will LOVE it!
These questions don’t seem so terrifying when answered truthfully. And, if your answers reveal that you could do more or you could do better, you know what you need to do…
So, with these questions answered for now, there’s one thing left to do… Get on with it!
