2 / 2 | Challenge Work Vacuum | Unlocking Time + Creativity As Work

 

'Picking up something new in this context is a distraction from your feelings and thoughts. Use the time to do what you are creatively or instinctively drawn to in the moment.'

Challenge Work Vacuum

Do you want to test out a Work Vacuum without taking a vacation? Take a 30-day diet of no TV, movies or box sets, no news media of any kind, no social media or magazines, no reading, no networking, no drinking alcohol and no socialising or networking. I would encourage you to throw in a couple of silent days each week while you’re at it. This will heighten your sensitivity to your inner voice.

Reading non-fiction self-development books is allowed but a maximum of only one hour a day. No eating or drinking non-alcoholic drinks more than you normally would to placate any feelings that come up during the challenge.

2 / 2 | Making The Change | Picking Up On Pieces

 

'I couldn’t even fall back on a traumatic childhood as the deep-seated reason for my discord and the seemingly constant set backs in my work and personal life.'

Making The Change

We yearn for simplification, yet we are in ourselves very complex creatures by default. We pray for a magic pill that will solve all of our problems and get us back on track living the life we want on our terms.

Despite my years of experience, the responsibility I’d taken for my life outcomes, no matter how negative they were and the fact I’d tried hard to be the master of my destiny by starting businesses I wanted to I’ve waited and hoped for one too. It never came.

The first and persistent problem we hit in the Endless Search is that of course, we are actually all very different despite what the spiritual, business or marketing gurus might lead us to believe.

Now I realise there is no one-size fits all cure-all that will release us from this right-of-passage jail time anxiety inducing anguish. I’ve wasted years looking for an escape from this perpetual prison sentence.

First Flow | In The Creative Loop

 

'This vital component of the Creative Loop isn’t always apparent...'

First Flow

Whether you’re overly absorbed in or regularly distracted by the High Definition Life or not we would all feel better if we were more creative in our life, work and relationships. When I talk about being creative I’m not just referring to the obvious forms of creativity like the arts, crafts or design professions, inventing a new product, or starting and building a business.

I’m also referring to being more creative in how we approach situations, events and relationships in our personal life and work life. It doesn’t matter if these are big things or little things, creative thinking not just creative doing permeates all of our lives to varying degrees depending on what we’re dealing with. Implementing change is inherently creative.
