Having a consistent practice routine can help turbocharge your craft.
If you are a writer, this could mean writing one page per day.
If you are building a software product, this could mean picking one feature and implementing as much of it as you can.
More generally, this could simply mean putting in an hour of focused practice daily.
Regardless of how you feel.
This is what allows you to become an expert in your field down the line.
When it comes to shipping creative work, however, a crucial skill is having the ability to practice for the sake of it.
This means letting go of work that doesn’t meet the bar and not feeling bad about it.
If you write an article every day, that doesn’t mean you have to publish it. You can simply discard it and know it helped make you a better writer.
If you are coding an application, this could mean throwing away the few hundred lines of code which don’t have a place anymore or turned out to be inefficient.
If you are filming a YouTube video, this could mean editing out a bunch of content that isn’t adding much to the final video.
This will ensure that the world sees your top work while you continue to improve along the way.
