My dear,

That feeling of unsureness you get before taking a big leap on what you’ve been working on for so long?

Don’t mind it.

All things that have affected the world in some way were made by a person unsure of themselves. It comes with the territory.

The moment you stop second-guessing yourself is the moment you start sucking.

For that’s the moment you stop being skeptical of your own work. The moment you stop thinking. The moment you stop doing anything original, for original feels weird and icky and well, unpleasant. But original is what paves the way for the future.

That uneasy stomach feeling you get when you do something original? Don’t worry about it. All great beings have had, are having, and will have it too. Keep going.

Falsely yours,
Mike Powell
