There are four reasons we stop creating. All four are based on a desire for comfort. In each case, we retreat from the work, and tell ourselves we’ll get to it again. But the reality is we avoid it.
When you’ve got a good idea, and you’re using it and it’s developing, the temptation is to hold on to it until you can get it completely sorted out and organized for consumption. This is another form of self-glory, one of the lies that steals creativity, because it’s a self-protection mechanism that convinces you about your own hero status. It’s better to publish than to publish perfectly.
