It’s horrible!

Try your hand at something as a non-expert.

Record your introduction in an interview. Draw a lady walking with a winter coat. Write your life’s first poem. When you are done, the results are often horrifying (my introduction makes news bloopers look elegant). But that is actually a positive sign.

Ask yourself why something is horrible. List out the specific reasons.

  • The lady’s legs look deformed
  • The poem’s clichés dulls its imagery
  • Being born in Bangalore doesn’t improve my introduction

Now give the same task another go after fixing these problem and repeat until your creation no longer makes you cringe.

The same part of our mind that decides that something is horrible can help you get better.
