Talking about the content I make.
Today I wanted to talk about the content I make, and what I want to do in the future.
So I make content on several platforms. Here, expeditionfiction.com, two different Youtube channels and Twitch. There are times when I’ve put effort into the content I’ve made, and been happy with the result. Other times I’ve rushed it or half-assed it and not liked the result.
What I’m wanting to do now (and I’m going to put into practice) is take the time to improve my content. Improve it. Make it better. I want to make content I’m happy to share with others. I know what I make will never be perfect, and that’s ok.
Hank Green made a video in late October 2017 where he talks about the secret of his productivity. It’s a good video, but he says he takes his content to 80% of as good as he can make it and stops there. You can spend so much time trying to take what you do from 80% to 100%, especially compared to how much time it took to get to 80%.
It’ll take time to find out that sweet spot, but it’ll do me well to find it. It’ll mean I’ll be better as a creator. My work flow will, hopefully, improve. What I make will improve. Lastly, I hope I’ll be happier with what I release as well.
Overall, this should improve my quality of life (and, in turn, improve what I make) since I can rest easy in knowing I’m releasing good work that I can be happy with. Still, time will tell, and I look forward to seeing what comes of this.
