There is nothing surprising about any creative output. You just see it finished, compiled and maybe melting on its own. You imagine how it turned out as it was. Of course, you can ever dissect the mystery unless you have a hold of the source file. You start to think of the non-existent backstage. It only matters if you care enough, but it would matter even more if it’s a hit to everyone. But somehow it mattered to you.
Will it be useful or will it be ignored?
There is a point where one idea comes to life. How do you organize your thought? As a musician, you probably take it from the chorus first, or maybe from a good short riff that is inspiring enough to carry you over into the next thing you imagine to be an explosive bang!
When you start to contemplate it as a finished product, where you are accountable to publish, that is where the discipline kicks in. When you are producing more seriously, you can’t let important details be taken for granted. You have to take care of each layer’s journey. You can delegate this to a reliable person if you have to or do it fiercely. Every tiny bit is taken care of, so that when you assemble it into a collective whole, it is easy to make it what it’s meant for.
Just pigeonhole each detail like you take care of an infant. And you’re sure to go.
