Faking it until you make it

No one goes to bed, closes their eyes, and then instantly falls asleep. Instead, you fake it. You fake it until one moment you are awake and the next you are sleeping.

Most of the time, especially creators and artists, feel like a fraud. We often don’t feel like we are in the mood to do our best work.

The alternative is to build a practice. Faking it until you make it. Every day, I sit down to write a blog but it doesn’t mean every day I feel in the mood. On those days, I fake it. I write bad writing until something is worthy of publishing. The best I can do that day.

Build your life around a practice. And when you do, you will soon discover that what you do determines way more how you feel rather than how you feel determines what you do.
