Be consciously creative – reignite your spark!
Is this you?
Are you feeling pushed to make money with every little thing you do? Spending all your time on social media, marketing, and websites – leaving you with no energy or motivation to be creative and actually make what you’re marketing?
In a world that is so focused on monetizing every little bit of creativity you can muster, it’s easy to get drained of ideas, energy, and inspiration. After all, if you can make something, you should be selling it, right?
How many times have you shown your creative work to someone, only to have them say “you should turn that into a business!”?
Well, it’s certainly the dream: making a livable income doing something you truly love. The reality, however, is that it can often be much more difficult and stressful than that first sale or media recognition will have you believe.
By always looking for the next saleable project, spending more time on marketing than making…it’s all too easy to get lost in the “business of things” and lose touch with your passion. With bills to pay, it can feel impossible not to fall into the trap of productivity above creativity. Stress and creative passion just don’t mix. Stress is the nemesis of creative passion – while working on a deadline can certainly be exciting and sometimes helpful, in the longer term these stresses can make it harder and harder to work from your internal passion rather than just cranking out something to make a buck.
