Today, I’ve got creative R&D on my mind. At first, I thought I’d be clever and change the R&D from “Research & Development” to “Routine & Discipline.” I was going to talk about the importance of a daily routine and why discipline is both needed for maintaining performance and a byproduct of what you do. But as I gathered my thoughts, I realized research and development are equally important in our creative lives. In today’s episode of Getting Work To Work, I’m talking about why we need to broaden our boundaries of research, slow down and spend more time experimenting and exploring sub-sections of our crafts, and align those efforts with our established creative processes.
Three areas of R&D that will bring new life to your ideas and creative projects:
- Broaden your boundaries of research.
- Slow down and spend more time experimenting and exploring sub-sections of your craft.
- Align your R&D efforts with your established creative processes.
