Tools for Titans #42 : Inspiration is for amateurs.

Justin Boreta is the founding member of Glitch Mob.

I have no fricking idea who this guy is. If you are a fan of his music, please share with me his better songs. Initially, I had half a mind to skip this section because it is not coherent enough to be in this book and the editor should be shot for allowing this to be included.

The only statement I will discuss today is the statement that "Inspiration is for amateurs - the rest of us just show up and get to work." The editing is so bad, I wasn't even sure whether he agreed with this statement or he didn't agree with it.

The flaw in this statement is that getting inspired was positioned to be mutually exclusive against showing up to get the work done. You often need a certain measure of both to engage in your creative pursuits.

For example, this Tools for Titan's series is quite grindy because I need to be disciplined enough to do one segment every day. But sometimes, feedback from the fans as well as the Adsense numbers give me the inspiration and motivation to carry on.

Keep it hanging... Tools for Titans on this blog will be over and done with over the next 4-5 days.

Then we will move to something more hardcore for intermediate investors.
