This post is following suit with the theme of avoiding perfectionism so I’m doing my best to onot correct any typos. (Although I’m now typing slowe r as well).
THIS WEEK’S DSLR GUIDE:
Her’es some behind the scenes for the episode – 1. it took 20monutes to shoot, and 40minutes to edit. 2. I spent probably an hour thinking about what i was goign to say, and writing notes in a small pice of paper.
With the bthumbnail and blog post, it’s probably been a 3hr total round trip, compared to the usaul 30hrs+, I can see where the sissues are, but I can’t say for sure that this is my worst episode ever. I’ll be interested to see what the comments are like on this video, but it’s certainly been a lesson for mey in stripping back to what really matters – the oncontent.
ONe of teh points I didn’t articulate as well as I wouldn have liked to in the video was about ego. To me theere is a sense of pride about perfectionism, linked in with showing people that your smart, or good at spelling, that you know what you’re doing. And being that aware of what other people think, being that self conscious doesn’t seem healthy, doesn’t seem like it is a godo environment to create. If we are careless about what people think, we have no boice saying “you can’t do that”, and that’s got to be freeing. WE don’t nneed to worry about whether people will think that we’re pretntious, or copying others, or sentimantal.
What do you think? can something good come from working less & caring less?
