Since it is officially Super Bowl weekend, it is only right that I post throwback pictures of me in a sports jersey. I will always be a Redskins fan, but I'm rooting for the Steelers this weekend. (NOTE: I just realized a day after publishing this post that the EAGLES are playing against the Patriots...not the Steelers. LOL! Correction -- I'm rooting for the Eagles.)
Get your head in the game. If you are a creative like me, then you are always trying to differentiate yourself from others and/or be one of the best in your industry. You look at other websites, social media accounts, marketing techniques, and etc. to see what you can do differently. While this assessment can be beneficial, it can also be time consuming and damaging. For example, you end up spending an unnecessary amount of time trying to figure out how your aesthetic is different than that of another fashion blogger. You realize that your time could have been spent doing something more productive like writing a blog post or enhancing your website design, basically anything that grows your brand. If you say that you haven't done this before, then you are definitely not being honest with yourself. Everyone has done it... I have!
I have realized that when you focus on others, you lose the "game." You don't get the "Super Bowl ring." It's like when a wide receiver catches the football in a football game. Although he tries to make sure that he doesn't get tackled by those on defense, you don't see him studying all of the members on the opposing team during the game. He has tunnel freakin' vision. His goal is to get to the touchdown zone to score points for his team and ultimately win the game.
Basically, what I am trying to say is that it is imperative for us to focus on ourselves in terms of our creative endeavors (actually...in LIFE!) or else we miss out on opportunities and our "Super Bowl ring" (success).
