Being too Careful makes us Fail

"The reason some people are self-conscious and awkward in social situations is simply that they are too consciously concerned, too anxious to do the right thing." -Maxwell Maltz

This does not only apply in our social life but in everything that we do.

It hit me the other day when I was trying to draw a comic. I wanted to do good but the end result look "shaky". It's then that I understood that I was too consciously concerned about it. I lacked confidence due to lack of practice.

"Masters are successful because they've mastered the basics." - Orrin Woodward

Those who master the basics are no longer consciously concerned about what they do and produce better result because of it.
