I've just realised something about my current work rhythm that I don't like!
I feel like I have stopped creating and started consuming. Maybe I'm being a bit hard on myself but I feel like I have settled for input instead of output. The ideas and creativity hasn't stopped but the regular output has. I have a list of unfinished blog posts, videos, songs and books on my computer. I have notebooks full of thoughts, ideas, revelations and plans. But to be honest none of it counts if they don't make the journey to output.
I work professionally with many people in the creative industry helping them thrive in implementing rhythms to help them survive the Creative Process. I believe these rhythms are tangible and they work. I know this because I have seen many creatives and leaders implement them into their own lives and produce amazing work and move forward personally and professionally.
But in a way I am realising that recently I have settled for watching and supporting others as they create and produce great original work. Somehow living vicariously through the output of others.
Don't get me wrong I haven't been doing nothing. I have been working on growing a business, I have developed coaching processes and workshop content. I'm currently working on larger projects that involve me producing original content, but on a daily basis, as a regular creative rhythm I have stopped focusing on sharing and shipping what I personally can produce.
So today my question for myself and to you is. What would it look like to produce something today that only you can, and share it with maybe a single person, or even the whole world? But focus on the process of adding something of value today, push something out into the world. You wont regret it!
