For me, one of the hardest things about creating is not having any rules that inform my creativity. I used to think that I didn’t have enough time or money to really invest in my creativity — but once I hit a point in my life where I did have BOTH time and money to invest in my creativity I was super overwhelmed.
Today on the show Katrina and I are talking about how to create constraint to keep you moving throughout a project.
Specifically we’re discussing:
- We’re more creative with rules or parameters, and how to do that
- When to launch a project, when projects are finished, and how to share a project that isn’t “finished”
- When to sell your project (if at all)
- How projects can get legs and turn into other opportunities
- Seeing what’s possible, and how tiny moments can add up to something larger
- How sharing your work can be a critical part of the formation process
