All images but one are completed. YAY!

I’m setting the publishing date to 10/26 although I’m leaving it as 10/23 on the Action Plan. This gives me more time to complete exercises in Creating Your Life.

Insights

The specific steps in the creative process are actually pretty simple. If you’ve done any project management you’ll find it easy to create and update Structural Tension Charts.

The more challenging part in the creative process is the mindset piece because shifting from a problem solving perspective to a creating perspective doesn’t come naturally to most of us myself included. Creating Your Life provides lots of exercises and ideas for making the mindset shift easier and I want to spend some time doing those exercises.

Without taking time to integrate the ideas I quickly get caught up in checking off boxes on my ToDo list. While I love the endorphin rush of checking off those little boxes, it can get addictive and I’m back to mindless activity and problem solving instead of  consciously creating.
