I Love You But Please Back Off! | March 18, 2016

Often, it’s better to not show what you intend to do in the beginning of an artwork. That way, you can do what needs to be done and create what you want. After all, too many chefs in the kitchen would spoil the food.

Remember who’s in charge of the project. It’s you and not anybody else. You’re the one who had the vision. Don’t let other people change it without examining them thoroughly. When someone tells you otherwise, remember that they’re not factoring what’s important to you.

While other people may offer invaluable advice, it’s good to remember that you’re the one who’s going to do it. It’s hard to accomplish what you want if you listen too much to other people. You need to remember that they cannot see your imagination. They’re only spectators who’s watching your progress. You’re the one running the show.

There are times when it’s good to tell people to back off. However, do it with love and kindness. They mean well. However, they’re not helping you in terms of creating your vision. After all, you would do the same thing if you were in their position.

How do you tell people lovingly to back off?
