Check out the Accidental Creative podcast to re-focus your creative energy. I’ve reference the AC before, however Episode 36 is particularly good because it offers a simple reminder to pay attention to the things that matter in the rhythms of our professional lives. I recently found myself at odds with my creative rhythms, so the timing of this episode was particularly effective in getting me back on track.
Being a good creative professional and being a good business person don’t happen without effort. It’s kind of like the cheesy old saying:
‘Lucky’ is what happens when ‘opportunity’ meets ‘preparedness’
You need to foster your environment–enable it, fertilize it, nurture it, in order to help produce the best results possible.
