Trusting Yourself (GWTW516)

What does it mean to trust yourself? Inspired by a quote from Seth Godin’s book, The Practice: Shipping Creative Work, I’m exploring what it means to trust yourself and how trust connects to your passion. For most of my business, I found it easier to trust someone else’s interpretation of me rather than trust my thoughts, desires, and feelings. But as I consider what it means to trust myself and do the work connected to that trust, I see an interesting new path forward. To outsiders, it looks a lot like where I’ve been before. But to me, it feels so much different.

"The Possibilities in Strengths" with Micah Lorenc (GWTW515)

Do you know what your strengths are? More importantly, do you know why that even matters? Today, I’m talking with Micah Lorenc, a Gallup-Certified Clifton Strengths Coach, about all-things strengths.

Lost in Hypothetical Scenarios (GWTW514)

How much time do you spend thinking about hypothetical scenarios, and how will you respond to them? If you’re anything like me, more time than you’d like to admit. After all, you’re proactive and responsible, but there is a fine line between planning and procrastinating. I recently realized that the more time I spend planning for problems that may or may not exist, the less time I spend producing work, improving my craft, and connecting with others. In today’s episode of Getting Work To Work, I’m going to explore several theoretical problems, why they are distractions, and how to keep moving forward.

Does the World Need Your Voice? (GWTW512)

If I were to summarize a common phrase I read, it would go something like this: “You are unique; the world needs your voice.” Every time I take that in, I nod along in agreement, but then another part of me starts questioning it. “Yes, I believe in the state of uniqueness, but with over 7.9 billion people in the world, not everyone needs my voice.” These feelings compound as I consider the way society takes the complexity of personalities and uniqueness and simplify them according to categorization, you know, putting people in boxes. Some groups are deemed worthy of speaking and being heard; others are silenced and shoved aside. Before I know it, a phrase meant to empower becomes something that overwhelms and quiets my soul. In today’s episode of Getting Work To Work, I’m going to explore what it means to share your unique voice for yourself and those around you.

More Than You Need (GWTW508)

A trap I’ve fallen into is only producing the exact amount of creative stuff required of me. No wasted effort. Efficient. I hold tight to it all, pretending every morsel of my creativity is precious. But today, my thoughts are different as I combine inspiration from Jeff Tweedy’s book, How to Write One Song: Loving the Things We Create and How They Love Us Back, with a fertile imagination in the initial stage of a new project. With all this energy and drive, what if I capture every idea possible without worrying about whether it’s correct or not? I’m going to explore this idea and ways to store your unused, rejected, and surplus ideas for future use.
