Thanks for following, James! I’d say, yes, take action. However, we tend to envision goals that are far beyond our own abilities. When we go at these full-force, we burn ourselves out, or we’re just intimidated to even get started.

The antidote to this is small actions. Build a tiny creative habit of a daily deliverable. Something you can do in a single sitting – such as 100 words. In parallel, you take what you learn from those daily deliverables and work on larger projects, all the while trusting that it will take time for your all of the information to sink in so you can reach a solution.
