An unavoidable part of being a creative is facing your demons: self doubt, perfectionism, worrying about what other people might think…
I get it…these are things we all have to stare in the face.
But one easy way people often try to avoid these feelings is to start copying other work.
(And it’s something you might be doing right now without even realising…)
Whether it’s track walkthroughs, complex templates or just straight up copying, the truth is: copying isn’t creative.
Because creativity is the process of using new ideas and actions to create original productions…and that’s why we’re all here right?
So in this week’s podcast I’m showing you just how easy it is to fall into the habit of copying, but more importantly, showing you the way to break free of the cycle and become truly creative!
The choice is yours… do you want to stifle your creativity, or liberate it?
Listen to this week’s episode of the Finish More Music podcast now.
- Copying isn’t creativity, it’s copying.
- The more you copy, the more anxious you will feel about your own abilities.
- You must build a creative process that liberates your creativity – one that allows you to express all of the great ideas in your head.
- Replicating another person’s work as closely as possible only leads to disappointment – it never sounds as good.
