I feel the same way as Joe and his guest Fahim here.
All I want to do is put shit out and not see the results (good or bad) because I’m my own worst critic.
- If it’s good, then it fuels my ego & gives me an insatiable dopamine high.
- If it’s bad, then I feel shitty and just criticize myself on why it was so bad.
Because I’m such a critic of myself, it’s basically self-harm to start thinking about what others think — I’ll just criticize myself to infinity.
It’s why I like posting on my blog more than Twitter — because the lightspeed feedback loop of likes & comments aren’t here.
If someone has something to say then they’ll send their comment via email so the praise or critique will be much slower and (hopefully) more thought through.
