In this episode, Youngman explains why he decided not to do the #Cramuary challenge. Yes, the very challenge that he created.
Was it fear? Self-sabotage? Laziness? Burnout? Bitcoin, even?
He’s not sure, and he’s been too ashamed to talk about it, but by the end of the episode he gets a much better understanding of why, even after two years of constantly thinking and talking about it, Resistance can still hit you with fists of fury.
And that’s nothing to be ashamed of.
“I was thinking about doing all of that work and putting in all that time, and I was just dreading it.”
“It’s not a big deal if you push off your big project. You shouldn’t feel shame about realizing that it’s not the right time or you’re not in the right mindset or place in your life to be able to do something that you care very deeply about. You can always do it later, you can always do it better. As long as you do it.”
“I don’t know why I felt for so long that I should be invulnerable to creative blocks and burnout.”
“I promise to you that I will open up my heart and soul to you and share all of the creative blocks that I am going through myself.”
“It’s okay to do other projects. It’s okay to take breaks. And it’s okay to say ‘no’ to something that you said ‘yes’ to earlier.”
