This is the final installment of the 6 Keys of Creativity. If you missed parts 1 and 2, links are below so you can go back and listen to them.
Today’s episode is about the next two keys of my 6 Keys to Creativity. If you missed the first part, you can listen to it here.
Today on the podcast we’re starting a series on the 6 Keys to Creativity that inform how I operate.
Have you ever started something and you were so excited about it? I’m sure you have.
Then, something about it, maybe the way you bad it set up, made it feel more like a chore. You didn’t look forward to it anymore and you didn’t really want to do it. It wasn’t fun. You only did it because you felt like you had to. It was expected.
That, my friends, is where I had gotten with this blog. I needed something to make me want to do it again.
This weekend, I watched the Launch Bloggers Conference live feed. (I was originally going to go, but couldn’t.) I had a couple Aha! moments while listening to Melissa George and Marisa Mohi. Because of that, I’m making some changes here.
The main thing you’ll notice is frequency. I will no longer be trying to post every day. Instead, you can expect posts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Beyond that, I will post links to podcast episodes and videos when they go up, most likely on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
I’m also going to make better use of blog categories and tags. Instead of trying to do articles/opinion pieces on things I don’t know enough about, I’ll be talking more about what I know, what I’m working on, and things I use to get my work done.
There will be more behind-the-scenes stuff and explanations of why and how I do things. Instead of talking generically about creativity, I’m going to be showing more about how I use it in my life so I can give practical examples.
I think these changes will make for a more interesting and fun experience for all of us.
I’ll have another post up on Wednesday.
I have been working on reviving my podcast. After a lot of thought, I present to you…
It seems strange to think that there are only two weeks left in this year. I actually had to check the calendar after I typed that. Yes. Two weeks.
The other day, I was thinking that it was early to be planning for next year. When I look at the calendar and realize that, though? It’s not too early at all. In fact, I kind of feel some pressure being applied.
But… I’m good.
I don’t have everything in place that I want for 2019, but who does? Not only am I not that organized, I don’t want to be that rigid.
My planner setup for the year is in a purple Carpe Diem A5 6-ring binder. I’m doing a hybrid method using a traditional calendar (week on two pages layout) and Bullet Journal methods. I’ve been giving it a trial run for the past couple months and it’s working out great.
I already have my goals lined up. I will be tracking them per quarter so I’ll better know where I stand with what I’m wanting to do. I won’t share them here just yet. I will let you know some of them as they come along because it involves new books, courses, and reviving my podcast.
It’s more than keeping on keeping on. It’s growing and improving and loving what I do so that I will have more things to share with you, too.
Have you started planning for 2019 yet? What kinds of content do you want to see here (or hear on the podcast) that would help you reach your goals?
