If You’re Stuck Creating Content, Remember The Ceramics Teacher

When you need inspiration to stop procrastinating and create content, read this…

The book “Art & Fear” has a wonderful story about a ceramics course — it can teach all of us about how to become great at what we do…

At the beginning of the course, the ceramics teacher divided the class in two groups of students.

She instructed Group A to create a large number of pots. This group of students will be graded solely on the quantity of pots they produce. Whatever quality is fine. Each one simply has to make as many pots as time allows.

The students in Group B, on the other hand, were instructed to create “the perfect pot.” Each student will be graded solely on the one pot.

At the end of the course, the pots were ordered based on their quality.

Interestingly, all the best pots were made by students in Group A — that is, the group instructed to make as many pots as possible.

Due to their experimentation, they had become more skilled by the day.

(I feel badly for Group B … I hope the teacher helped them get out of analysis paralysis!)

Learn this well:

Through quantity, you’ll come to create quality.

And some of them your audience will LOVE and share forward.
