The Creative Struggle (GWTW36)

I recently had coffee with a friend and we ended up talking about the struggles we face as creative professionals. While I didn’t have a good answer at the time, I spent the past few days reflecting upon this conversation. I realized that I struggle with coming up with new ideas, I worry about repeating or contradicting myself, and I have a difficult time starting the process all over again after finishing a large project. In this episode of Getting Work To Work, I share some specific ways I overcome my creative struggles and share seven ways you can work through your own.

Seven Ways You Can Work Through Your Creative Struggles

  1. Identify and document your creative struggles.
  2. Seek accountability from friends and confidants.
  3. Focus on your why.
  4. Keep your audience in mind.
  5. Never stop learning.
  6. Move beyond your strengths.
  7. Your excuses will get old and prevent you from getting your work done.
