How To Dance With Uncertainty

One force that’s ever-present in any form of creative work is uncertainty. The reality is that you will never know – really know – what’s right.
Is this good enough?
Is it finished?
Is it the right strategy?
How should I spend my time/focus/energy today?
Which idea should I run with?
How can I sell this to my manager?
Uncertainty is an uncooperative dance partner. You have to move with it – in concert, drawing from it, following its lead at times, but always with an eye on your next move – in order to do your best work. The worst thing you can do is allow uncertainty to paralyze you into inaction.

On today’s show, we share three strategies for dealing with uncertainty.
