How Less is More in Creativity

How Less is More in Creativity

Later today a few of us are going to talk about the power of masterminds for creative entrepreneurs.

Like many indie creatives are busy doing their own thing - making projects happen, getting stuff done. When they run into challenges, these individuals would rather just figure it out themselves.

Why not? They’re self-reliant. It’s gotten them this far.

But here’s the problem. Time and willpower.

Although I’m all for a mindset of abundance and all that the universe has to offer us, the reality is that there are still only 24 hours in a day, and willpower as it turns out is finite.

A friend of mine tells me each time that he’s going to work on his will power.  That he is finally going to hack the things that he hasn’t been able to do. While this is great and noble, I’d argue that this is probably NOT the best use of his time.

Getting Down to Your One Thing Needed for Success and Creativity

In the One Thing Gary Keller talks about the how rather than trying to fight our limits, it’s better to understand them and work with them.

For years I’ve made lists - lists of creativity goals, lists of dreams, lists of things to do.. These have their place. Just like writing these words, they help me to be more clear on my thoughts.

But at some point it’s time to buckle down and get to work. And as Keller points out, multi-tasking is not just an illusion but a dangerous myth.

My friend Bill Belew says that if the devil can’t stop you from doing something good, he’ll give you so much to do that you don’t do anything right.

We don’t need another book on creativity or workshop on time management or productivity.. deep down we know what we need to do.

So what’s holding us back from sharing our creativity?

Fear.

And the thing I’ve learned that it’s not enough to say, “just face your fear” - never mind something dangerous like “be fearless..”

What if each week you met with a tribe that won’t let you fail?

What if they helped you get the clarity that you’ve been looking for?

What if they offered the resources and connections for what you need?
