What I do think is a bit too much, is that you have to be able to let go of your need to “be right,” and let go of your need to “be perfect.” By that I mean that if you try and force yourself to be perfect, you will miss your mark and you will fail. This is the same way with painting.
Painting is like a lot of things. This is why when a painter makes a mistake, it can be hard to let go of the “mistake” and “error” and just move on and paint. In painting, it is easy to paint that way because we are so used to doing it.
This is why I always say that we should be able to let go of the idea that if we think we are going to fail at something, that we should let go and just keep going. A painter, like artists from other traditions, is driven to make progress. And sometimes that progress is too much to bear. It gets in the way of doing good work, because we are so used to doing it, and so we don’t want to stop.
I find myself asking myself the same question a lot of times when I work on my own house: should I paint my new house? Paint is one of those things that seems to have homeowners pretty stumped. I think it is because painting your home is one of those things if you get wrong, you can’t really hide it. Paint covers a lot of the surface of your home’s interior and exterior, so it will obviously impact your decor.
Buying or building a new home, you would think would eliminate the paint stress, but it can actually be the very thing that causes it. Among the many decisions that a new homeowner has to make during construction, choosing paint colors can be the most difficult. I know this because I get asked a lot, plus the Google search terms “Should I paint my new construction home?” is one of the most frequent ones that lead people to our website. It goes beyond just choosing colors.
Links are one of the three major ranking factors in Google. So if you want your website’s pages to rank high in search, you will almost certainly need links. Google (and other search engines) look at links from other sites as “votes.” These votes help them identify which page on a given topic (out of thousands of similar ones) deserves to be ranking at the very top of the search results.

The thing with links is that they are a kind of vote that only Google has the ability to actually count. So if you have something you put on a page that Google can’t find, you can’t really say that it “really” deserves to be ranking. Link building involves not just linking to other pages, but actually finding and contacting the people behind the links. When you get a link, Google checks its own algorithms to see if the link really “matches” the link in question.
You can’t just tell people to find your site and try to reach you, but then they’ll know it’s not theirs.
You can tell Google to rank your site higher, but you can’t tell them who the source of the link is. This is a bit of a hassle since links can be made from practically any site, but it is one of the few ways to do it without having to send your traffic to Google. The good news is that you can build your own links.
