I recently read an article by a buddy of mine named Rob Cubbon. He describes the state of mind & spirit he was in while creating a few of his e-books in his post “My Rules of Product Creation.”
While creating his first one, he was stressed and it felt like rolling a rock uphill. In contrast, the second one just “happened” by itself. Oddly – the second one which was infused with joy and ease is also preferred by his readers and sells better.
I’ve had the same thing happen when I record CDs under stress, so I know full well what he was describing.
I was starting to feel a similar process regarding the upcoming Guitar Instructional DVD which I plan to shoot later this summer.
