When I write blog posts, songs or other things I want to show off to the world, I tend to want to publish them immediately. But is this really the best way to work? I’m not so sure any more.

When you’re in the moment of creation you can feel incredibly passionate about what you’re doing, to the extent that sometimes it can blind you to the imperfections. Many times I’ve uploaded a song and come back to it later with better ideas, or noticed things that I wished I had changed before letting it lose in the world.

Coming back and looking at something with a different frame of mind can be almost as valuable as having a completely different person help you out.
