My DVD’s arrived in the mail this week, some of my promotional copies from PhotoshopCAFE.
While it seems like quite awhile ago that I finished the challenging task of recording my first training DVD, it really hasn’t been that long at all. At the time I was working on this project, it felt like a monstrous undertaking. In retrospect, I wouldn’t change the experience, because I can now look back on it with a great sense of accomplishment. Holding the finished product in my hand is made all that much sweeter because of the difficulty and stress I went through recording it. Many times during the process, I thought to myself, “there is no way I’m going to finish this, and if I do, it’s going to be an incoherent mess.”
I’m now working on my second DVD for PhotoshopCAFE, and while it will still be a challenge, I find myself without any of the anxiety I felt while working on the first one. Without challenges forcing you to step out of your routine, there is no growth. Even though I already knew that, it would appear that I need to be reminded of it once in awhile. This DVD did just that, and I’m grateful for the lesson.
