    Portfolio. Motivation, or lack of...

    you guys, im having a REALLY difficult time finding motivation to get my online portfolio finished. its a LOT of work! a second job, if you will. i blame my ocd and perfectionism, which i know is not a friend of mine. i quit my job 3 months ago, and here i am, sitting here staring at the code and trying to make sense of everything to make it look beautiful.

    how do you find it in your soul to get it up and out?!?! help!

    Why not post us a link to your portfolio here and get some feedback.

    I know what a brake on productivity, perfectionism can be.

    The thing with digital work I find is it's really hard to decide when it's finished. Like when is it no longer in beta?

    Got to reign in the over-self-criticism sometimes and just put it out there and move on.

    Then take a break - like weeks or even months, and come back to it fresh.

    Just my take (from experience).

    Yes! Good advice about perfectionism. Just get it up and worry about perfecting it after more of the content is there. I can waste ridiculous amounts of time on tiny details. It's immensely satisfying --and motivating-- to make actual, real progress.
