Thoughts on creativity & work (that helped me)

June 25, 2021

by: Teresa Pham

New mindset shifts I’ve made over past few months:

  • Most people aren’t sitting around comparing you to every designer like you do to yourself, much less the best ones. They might even see both and still think your’s is better – it’s all subjective, so you can only worry about what you like and think is good at the time.
  • Don’t assume the value others get from what you made will match your own opinion of it. Think of all the songs or movies artists and actors don’t think are their personal bests but fans love or find something to love about. (Example: Vanessa Carlton and A Thousand Miles) You tried your best at the time of making it, and there is always a chance someone else will find some value from it – as long as you share it.*
  • You don’t have to cram all the ideas into the first collection – you’ll have plenty of time to create and showcase more. Make sure to edit yourself and only do what makes sense and is necessary. Be clean and concise and consistent.
  • We all care so much about what others think and get stuck in that, when the irony is that no one cares what you are doing and everyone is just worrying about themselves when others don’t notice.
  • You should only be trying to be better than you were yesterday. The only fair person to compare yourself to for growth and progress is yourself.
  • Try to just start (write/design whatever it is etc.) without thinking of selling or monetizing it in any way. You’re just seeing, trying, experimenting. Most likely, some idea will at least come out of starting even if not every single thing you design will be for sale. Think of themes as just an exercise to explore, play, and get better. They’re not a competition against anyone else, and they don’t have to be the best thing you ever created. If they were, that might even be a bad thing because then you’d have to beat it and match that success. Make designs YOU like that you also think are valuable and useful to others.
  • If they don’t sell or do well, that’s ok too. You learned and you inevitably got better through making them. It can only be a good thing to try.
  • At the end of the day, if you trust yourself to be able to adapt or keep going even despite a “failure”, then you will be successful no matter what eventually
  • It would be worse to let the fear of pit being perfect keep you from sharing something that could have helped or benefited someone, even if it’s just relating to someone else. Being honest and truthful and real is valuable to people in letting them feel less alone.
  • The mindset shift that changed everything and got me to finally get shit done: KISS + taking my inner critic/becoming my own friend. Letting go of having to be perfect at every little thing – it compounds and builds up and leaves you feeling stuck and paralyzed.
