Merlin Mann On Starting Something
If you’re a writer or and artist or just someone who wants to make/do something you really need to read Merlin Mann’s latest post on 43 Folders, entitled Fake Rocks, Salami Commanders, and Just Enough to Start:
Your Lizard Brain is absolutely right when it tells you that most people won’t notice if you don’t make something, and that a lot of people won’t particularly care if you do. But, how you choose to respond to that existential kōan will say a lot about your potential as both an artist and as an engaged human.
Go and read it. I’m going to read it again right now.
