I recorded a conversation for the podcast with Jordan Gray last week. The word that most resonated with both of us when discussing creative friction was periodicity. According to Cambridge Dictionary, periodicity is "the tendency of an event or series of events to happen repeatedly in a fixed pattern." As James Clear says, when you do something recurrently you adopt the identity of someone who does that often. A person who writes often becomes a writer; a person who speaks in public often becomes a public speaker. You obtain knowledge through education, but practice is what gets you to become whatever it is you're aiming for.
