Ah, the magical world of creativity, where ideas flow like rivers and inspiration strikes like lightning bolts.
As creatives, we are no strangers to the crazy river ride that is our artistic journey.
But amidst the whirlwind, there's a secret ingredient that can turn our wild dreams into reality: consistency.
So, grab your brushes, pens, or whatever tool sparks your imagination, and let's dive into the whimsical realm of becoming a more consistent creative.
Set the Stage for Creative Success:
- Carve out dedicated time for your artistic pursuits by creating a schedule or blocking off specific time slots for creativity. Treat it as a non-negotiable appointment with your craft. I also do this for my other priorities like one-on-one time with my kids or date nights with my husband.
- Put the most important things on your calendar first each month. Things like time audits or paying taxes.
- Make sure to take the time to do your daily tasks outside of creating. You know, the things like taking 5-15 minutes to do finances, write emails. Take an extra 30-40 minutes daily and do some kind of marketing. Either write email sequences, paid ad campaigns or social media content.
- Utilize productivity tools like time management apps or digital calendars to stay organized and ensure you have ample time for your creative endeavors.
Find An Art Mentor or Creative Business Coach:
- Seek guidance and support from experienced artists, online communities, creative business coaches or creative workshops. They can provide valuable insights, constructive feedback, and motivation to keep you on track.
- Consider finding an accountability partner, someone who shares your creative goals, to keep each other motivated and accountable. *Hint : That's me. ;)
Dance with Routine:
- Establish a creative routine that works for you. Determine your most productive time of day and dedicate it to your craft. Create a ritual that helps you get in the zone, whether it's lighting a scented candle or playing your favorite music.
- Break your creative process into smaller, manageable steps. Set daily or weekly goals to keep yourself motivated and focused.
Hilarious Hurdles and Overcoming Resistance:
- Embrace the humor in creative hurdles and challenges. Laugh at your mistakes, learn from them, and let go of perfectionism. Remember, creativity is all about experimentation and growth. I can tell you I get distracted frequently. I have three little balls of chaos running around my house on the daily. It's important to simply remember that it's ok to get a wee bit distracted every now and then. It's the joy of life. Just keep coming back to your systems.
- When facing resistance, try techniques like the Pomodoro Technique (working in focused bursts with short breaks) or the "Five-Minute Rule" (committing to work on a task for just five minutes to overcome inertia). These tricks can help you overcome procrastination and get into a creative flow.
Consistent Action, Stellar Results:
- Track your progress and celebrate milestones along the way. Keep a creative journal or use task management apps to record your accomplishments and reflect on your growth.
- Set realistic goals and break them down into actionable steps. Consistency is about taking small, consistent actions that accumulate over time and lead to significant results.
