We are our own worst critic which can sometimes be bad but can also be good. It’s bad when you’re always tweaking and trying to make it perfect. Never shipping or releasing your product, animation or design. But it can also be good when you notice you are stuck in a design rut. Others might not notice your work becoming stagnant, they just chalk it up to your style. This is where you have to come in and push yourself passed your weaknesses and improve. Next time you don’t think your work is up to snuff, ask if it’s just you being a perfectionist or if it’s because you’re stuck in a routine. The more you find yourself falling back on your safe methods, the more it will just become repetitive or stale. If you don’t spot it early, it will be even more difficult to break from it a year from now. Put your mind and energy into pushing what you’re creating not just making sure it’s perfect, get out of your comfort zone. You might find you like it.
