You’ll Never Be Perfect. Now’s The Time.

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late. — Reid Hoffman

I used to be a perfectionist, but nobody knew.

Nobody knew because they never saw the final product. When they did, it reeked of self-doubt and that waters down your art.

As a music producer, I have hundreds of tracks I never finished, tons that I never released, albums I never completed, all because I wanted to create the perfect piece of art.

What’s the point of spending so much time working on anything, trying to make it perfect, when all you’re doing is delaying the introduction of something marvelous.

80% of your project will be 20% of your efforts

Whenever I work on music 20% of the time is spent on putting together the entire foundation of the track. By then, I would have all the components required in the appropriate places for it to be a full song.

The rest of the time is spent on effects, mixdown, little transitions, this, that, etc, etc.

And it is here where we spend an eternity.

Of course, don’t believe in dichotomies. You want to spend enough time on your project where it is good.

Perfection can’t be your only North Star. It is way too subjective to rely on. Your definition of perfection might be way too much for someone else. Give yourself a break and just release your shit. Pour your heart out creatively.

At some point you will have a hard time finding inspiration because you’re not getting the proper feedback.

If you’re not putting your craft out there, nobody is listening to your music, nobody is reading your books, nobody is listening to your podcast, nobody is subscribing to your newsletter.

We Create Our Own Creative Barriers

I have lost many opportunities because I was too afraid to be freer with my music releases. I would spend weeks and months perfecting a track, just to never release it.

While trying to accomplish our goals, we spend a lot of time setting everything up to make sure the result is perfect. Whether you want to be a touring musician or a well-known health blogger.

Aiming For Perfection

We spend days, weeks, months, or even years trying to plan, and do our work, to make sure that once we’re ready to show the world what we have, they’ll be blown away.

Obviously, there’s nothing wrong with trying to create the greatest work you could. We all want to give our friends/fans/customers the best product so that it could be a hit.

Don’t Worry About Failing

But what if there’s silence after your first attempt? How are you going to feel after spending weeks on end tinkering with little details for it to get heard by 13 people?

You could have released a demo, gotten the same amount of listens, asked for feedback, and polish it.

Or fuck it, just release your stuff. Show your work to the world. If it’s a hit, rework it.

You got to jump at some point. Why not do it now?

Play The Game. Change The Rules

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Philosophy Propaganda is a creative collective focused on raising self-awareness and driving creativity.

Too often we are left wondering why our dreams have taken a backseat to a life we deem out of our control.

The truth is, the game we’re playing right now is not one
we can opt out of, but one we can leverage and shape — Philosophy Propaganda was born from that very awareness.

We are architects not only of art but our lives as well.

Among PHPR, the message is the product, and knowledge is our collective profit.

To change the rules, we must first play the game.

Check out thephpr.com to stay tuned.
