Day 2: It's not enough to just start

By James Hayton,

In the last few videos, I've talked about not waiting for conditions to be perfect before starting something and about trying to make small improvements every day.While it's important to start and not to let perfectionism hold you back, that doesn't mean you should avoid the work of making things better.When you're writing, for example, if you just write 10's of thousands of words without learning how to assess and improve your work, you're effectively procrastinating over editing becauseediting is difficult and scary.So don't wait for conditions to be perfect, but don't wait to start improving, either. It's all about balance!

Today's small improvements

I moved the camera up to eye level, and also figured out how to upload faster to YouTube. I'm also adding a page where you'll be able to find all the videos I upload.
