Inspired To Act (GWTW106)

You know, living the creative life is hard. There are the seasons when you are constantly churning out work; it seems effortless, painless, and fun. Then there are the times the creative well is dry and you struggle to accomplish anything. During these moments, have you found yourself asking: how do I find balance between my life and business? How do I grow when I am struggling to take care of today? What do I need to do to make it? In this episode of Getting Work To Work, I want to help you answer those questions with six ways you can use to fuel your inspiration, motivation, and action:

  1. Acquire experiences, not stuff
  2. Go on adventures
  3. Indulge your curiosity
  4. Create with your hands
  5. Tell new stories
  6. Find ways to merge what you know with what you want to learn
