Permission needed to create junk

From James Clear on the permission to create junk:

Creative work is no different than training in the gym. You can’t selectively choose your best moments and only work on the days when you have great ideas. The only way to unveil the great ideas inside of you is to go through a volume of work, put in your repetitions, and show up over and over again.

Obviously, doing something below average is never the goal. But you have to give yourself permission to grind through the occasional days of below average work because it’s the price you have to pay to get to excellent work.

This is one of the reasons I blog even when I make spelling errors, construct grammatically wrong sentences, when I don’t make sense and when I write the wrong stuff.

_[pullquote]The only way to be consistent enough to make a masterpiece is to give yourself permission to create junk along the way.[/pullquote]_The key is to continue to blog and write my thoughts. It is through this process of keeping a schedule to writing that I come up with good blog posts, good stories and blog posts I can be proud of.

I need to do that in all my endeavours in life a bit more.
