Welcome to the correct mindset podcast With Me, Sam Harris, BMO Harris. I invite fast. I think you mentioned who woke up like to share that wisdom and unpack that mindset and formulas. The grave today, I want to talk to you about something that I could just come and eat misinterpreted and can be quite Antichrist mindset. And it's a concept of quantity and quality and angry often told that we need to focus on quality and things like the 80-20 rule or the quiet around. So I had to chop down a tree. That's been 3 hours shopping for 20 minutes cutting and it makes you think that you really need to plan things and do things completely perfectly. The first time, it. Gives you a fear of failure. I'm afeared to do anything but you don't know what you're doing and that Landing in improving off to its, or are you getting along and it stops you from finding a flight and just doing stuff. And I think
No ways but in many aspects of what we do it can actually be better and will give you a better sense of a great minds and help him for you. If you go the opposite way and gave the quantity over quality and I just think that we can deliberate a lot for take action and see what you're trying to seek a perfect decision. It will just cause you to hesitate and it sent to people. He want to start the business but a waiting for like a perfect billion dollar idea. Or I knew people he would watch it be right to his but they wasn't like the perfect thing to write about and he's never found a thing to doing things and then wiping it out along the way. And we didn't realize that when we get into a practice and unlock a much bigger outside in the long run. And I think to be lucky you just need to be consistent and to be creative. You also need to be consistent and prevention.
Best promotion, mindsets. I really important factors in the drive is a success in this area. When you have a prevention mindset, you're trying to know. If a old attractive about things, you overthink them and it just stops you from getting anywhere. I wish you have a promotion like that, you see the upside of trying and you didn't worry about saying that you just do it and that's where you really want to be and they didn't change. It has been since birth, Travis and there is a study on students who were doing a photography class where they were split into two groups, the volume of that, what they had to take 100 photos. That was that task and that was the other group was to take one photo and I have to be the highest quality but you that they could do. And what was the price of you? Is that the first you didn't use as many fighters as possible. They ended up producing much better quality photos.
I tried different things just in the settings and he's tried it, and I didn't really well and they were surprised. He's going to the flow of creating things and I still want to make good stuff. So I'm out. Where is the second group and lots of time thinking about it and they and they and they weren't consistent with creating the settings on the camera, or how to make the best show up because they weren't trying. So they kind of thought the whole thing and didn't read it, right? And if they truly amazing, and a really good example by exposing yourself, to trying stuff, will likely end up making, you do more things to things. And so she just try stuff in the expectation.
It's nice to get some things straight away. And then another nice way of looking at this. This Pathway to a different way is unique about like your choices and on the things that we can see you. And so, they're asking for a restaurant, look at these are things that I go through phases, where I like, I went to either of them for a very long time and then once a month and it would like, I need to be the best restaurant. And I can have a real big Cedar fear of failure. And it's the same with movies and I'm just not watching any TV at all like that and it kind of annoys me. I spend too long doing it and then I'll try and everything and I end up screwing it up.
And it is kind of stupid where is when you are in Psych, whether you got your restaurant like two or three times a week or something, can you watching movies regular day, you started your doing? You know, it's a worried about making the perfect decision just more in the Florida Keys. That's how it works at you different things. I want to try out in terms of the restaurants with movies and you just said, I think you're less you got three of them and you'll end up discovering hidden gems that you hadn't expected to find another some flops and it is it kind of opened the thing but you end up getting the better side of it. I'm not saying you should definitely Karen. He have a lot of restaurants and watch movies all the time, but it's just, my phone is, is a nice way to think about it. Just shows that you can find a good things and and every all night before. So we going to be good at something amazing and save me the restaurants. And so if you think about the same way, with your creativity broke, your Creative Juice. Lots of things that you just have to try without any expectations and you
Surprise yourself how well you've done something.
Say, I just trying to give you like, very different sorts of examples, so that you can that make your own power of those in-between that yourself without me, having to give you every single example that you might want to do in your creative. Sheets, that makes sense. I just read the upside. The point that the Lord website opportunities, when you're happy to you and Bryson say, it is without worrying too much about the potential costs of looking stupid.

They came back in to you some other examples of things that I've been trying to do in the creativity of other things lately. And I've noticed, is that when I'm starting again, I used to overthink it way too much and it would take me ages. Irish wouldn't say anything. If you try to do a practice writing every single day just for half an hour, it becomes really easy. Just during the day, I would notice little things as I understand it and I just started seeing things I could use everywhere. And I have like four or five days a day and did not have time to write the mole. And just the one that's it is crap me. The most each day was the one that turned into doing it. I didn't really have to try and analyze the whole thing is, if I try and write like one thing a month, I just a bit nuts about it and everything, everything in this way.
Feel secure about putting anything in the paper and it really blocked me and it just Christ really shity. He is right, most the stuff. I'll end up making lost a lot of things and it just really helps on the flyer decisions could just make you more motivated to just keep on doing more stuff. Stay worried about this guy and just have more more ideas coming at you. And it's not so much of a rest before I try and analyze. The cave is the five different top. I thought I might write about past instead, it's more of a five more days every day. It's the one that's just to do. In my mind, the most that I that she can start myself, I'm not writing it to the next time. I think this whole concept around I think it's motivation in the things in the moment.
Yes it is. Just leave your passion to go and do it and so suddenly with the writing a bunch of ideas in the coming months later and if it should have been the one that gets me the most. The one that gets decided for me and I no longer have to worry about trying to make these decisions. If you just like another whole level of blocking my creativity, has to get it down and say we just spaced to make judgments which comedy writing lately. And I just want to being blocked on, wanting to make something really good. It is quite. So what am I supposed to buy something at the store? Cuz I'm trying to think of new things, I should do with my life.
What a way to still make them in the weight. I really want to and I just didn't see things on Tik-Tok and hopefully by the time you hit this, I'm going to go cuz I'll have a Tik-Tok account. Maybe it was me getting stupid stuff, probably any way back to you summarize. What's going on? Basically, I think the question is really important and trying to get a level to see. She said I can spend with my writing wires. If I do you want by the month? It's pretty hard. Where is writing every day. It's really easy. But then writing every day is too much of a commitment. If you don't have one, I will every day to put into it. And so trying to find the threshold where it just sparked your creativity and reduces your face, a demon and removed the block is but it isn't too much to take on. So I found it during a news that the once-a-week was enough to keep me, always taking you
This right about and that like I'd be inspired enough to Daphne like at 1 to pay per each week even if I'd like to have been doing more but it can't be consistent enough and doing it while I was doing it once a month is just like just no point and they want every day is just like the today as well as myself. I'll do it for a few days and then also, so whatever created finger doing what, how what the quantity needs to be set at you. Stop worrying about the quality, too much and just keep doing it. But I didn't say much to this talk to you from, doing it at all. And then I think that's like systemic formulas for you. And whatever that thing is. So that was my time before the right thing, but it might be different for. Let's say, you want to start a business because maybe you ought to try and suck on every year, it was a project I hustle and see what happens when they worry about you. Take a strong start again next year.
I have way too many examples. I see I was just thinking about the whole thing and I was like, crap and then me and my password changed during Seasons where I will choose. And also read all of his books or will choose the topics, such as racism, in equality, or money, and investing, and we'll just try and pick some good books. The cover different aspects of that whole subject and that will read through one book. And I certainly made the whole decision, very easy, and my thinking, very long time, and we ended up reading some books of a shit and reading some books that were amazing that we wouldn't have never thought of it, again exposed to things. We wouldn't of got to you if we just go on like
Wonder if I won't be trying to read like the greatest books, ever, without any real stuff, can he rent passing behind the whole thing? Anyway, I think I'm getting a little bit too far into you the examples now, and you probably got the point. That Wednesday is really useful. It is house created more, long time like that, please you creativity and makes the whole thing more enjoyable. And my final points about fact that I really want to do more, if I am focused because I found it the forecast like these, a lot more people say forces me to be more creative and Ashley come up with ideas myself rather than just trying to get other people to give me good ideas. So I'm still going to be getting cold in fees and I did one of these are weak and having one in to be a week and that would be great. It will see.
Is and hopefully we'll have some inconsistent coming out. You that justifies you drive you crazy ones at tips because I think like this one is something changed the way I think about track my settings. Ashley helped me do a lot better and faster for you anyway. And if you enjoyed everything you thinking about doing something, they ain't worried about you getting it. Perfect. The first time to try and see quite a few of it like a little bit. Got caught speeding.
