Communication Nation: Kill your little darlings

Blog of the week: This guy puts up lots of great material! The name of the blog really says it all, and this is a focused place to continually sharpen your thoughts on communications, primarily within a business framework.

Communication Nation: Kill your little darlings: "The principle is the same for any kind of creative work, whether it's designing a bridge, building a website or developing software. Often the thing that you love the most is the thing that's holding you back. The reason is that in your heart, you don't believe you have the ability to do it again.

You can."

Ain't that the truth? Anybody else feel that pull? The urge to stop where you are, to leave what you have as it is, even though you know it's beauty isn't enough, it needs more? I've recognized that before, but to see it put forth by someone else helps me to recognize and then deal with that propensity to hold myself back.
