A recent article by Ari Karpel titled “Robert Rodriguez On Creative Action: You Don’t Have To Know Anything; You Just Have To Start” really got me thinking. Being a creative person myself, I know firsthand the “challenge of starting”. I spend a lot of time ideating different creative projects, but it’s a completely different story to actually get down to it and execute even just one of them, so the rest of the world gets to witness what I had in mind all this time. I make excuses: I just don’t have the time. I can’t do it myself. I don’t have the money.
Approaching your creative streaming project can be the same way. You have this great idea about how this Web-based video streaming app on your website would encourage and enable your visitors to engage and interact with your brand in this really cool creative way. You know it’s going to be awesome. But then, the reality caves in. How am I going to do this? Where am I going to get the right help? Is this even possible? Do I have the budget for it?
Trailblazing is not easy. People have not seen what you envision to do, so they don’t understand. Because they don’t understand, you’re unsure of your project’s success. And because of the uncertainty of success, you settle with one of the tried-and-true projects and become just “one of them”. Just as Robert Rodriguez says in the article, one thing you need to trailblaze is, starting.
