If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
One of the difficulties that I have as is that I have always been sort of a lone wolf. I do things, figure it out, and well that was the end of the that. No bringing it down the mountain so others can see the discovery, no really promoting it, no work that others can really see.
Though this works, it is limiting. When you don't put things to the world, you don't get the feedback you need. You are advancing on your own, and that is fine but if you don't have a community that is looking at your work you don't improve as fast because you don't get the crucial feedback in knowing where you need to have improvement.
The act of putting things out there is an act of vulnerability. It is saying here it is what I know. The critical thing to show the world is that you are willing to stand up to the work you do. You are showing your work. You need to show the world you don't hide your work, you are your work and are proud to prove it.
So what are my weaknesses? Well, there are a few:
So what is the fear here? Am I too scared of my work? Well, it is not entirely done, but no, that isn't the case. They are evolving projects that are changing rapidly over time, and I need to get feedback now so that I can improve over time.
How am I going to fix this?
Basically, I'm going to try to be good enough, not perfect. Good enough means that I am going to update towards perfection continually but am not going to worry if the short term isn't good enough. It also means putting myself in a vulnerable position to advance forward.
