Thrashing on thrashes

Before a noodle comes the thrash.

The necessary, messy part of starting something where you give yourself permission to get out ALL your ideas unattached from whether they make sense.

Do it on a whiteboard, or a notepad. A napkin or some butchers paper. You can even thrash out loud into a voice recorder.

The form doesn’t matter, the process is what does.

Too often we avoid the thrash.

We obsess over perfect, visualising what it looks like without taking action because we’re overwhelmed by what the first step looks like.

Instead, we can remind ourselves: thrash now, sort later.
