Done is better than perfect.
Welcome to the first issue of CollabCreate Community!
Launching a newsletter has been part of my plan for CollabCreate since I started this last year. I told myself I'd do it when I had 100 subscribers. That number came and went (and more than doubled) but I always had a list of reasons not to start it... time... perfectionism... fear of failure... the usual entrepreneurial spirit killers.
One of the biggest things I've learned in the process of bringing CollabCreate to life is that things constantly change. Does anything go exactly as we plan, or turn out just like we envisioned? Not in my world! Successful people succeed because they're willing to commit to action without becoming (totally) obsessed with the results.
There are millions of people out there with amazing ideas! But a tiny fraction of them make their ideas a reality. When we put off taking action on something, we get stuck in a fantasy world of "what ifs" or idealized outcomes. We're robbing ourselves of experiencing the full creative process. We're stopping our own growth by refusing to learn through doing.
So, here's my very public version of that. My first newsletter. Not perfect (in my mind) or the way I envision it existing forever. But done. I hope you find useful information here, and that you're inspired to take one step towards doing something you've been putting off... after you finish reading this, of course.
Thanks for being along for the ride, and for all the love and support from this amazing community!
