Why do I create the things I do? From actually making podcasts, newsletters, and short films to dreaming of creating online courses, films, and products that help creative people get their work to work, I sometimes get trapped in research, validation, and permission. Understanding your motivation and your why is an important part of the creativity journey and in this episode of Getting Work To Work, I’m going to explore the reasons for why I create and what trips me up.

Why I create:

  • To think
  • To know what I know and don’t know
  • To start
  • To learn
  • To build momentum
  • To live

The by-products of creation:

  • Teaching
  • Coaching
  • Inspiring and motivating others
  • Getting feedback
  • Improving my process and systems
