As an entrepreneur, your creativity IS your brilliance.
It’s why you started your business in the first place.
To take beautiful photographs.
To write prolific prose.
To coach people to their truth.
Your creativity is your superpower to solving people’s problems.
When your creative juices dry up it feels debilitating
Have you ever had a block between you and your brilliance?
No matter what you try, there’s no way around it.
You’re left wondering how to reconnect with your genius.
Structure is the greatest creative aphrodisiac
Using structure to boost your creative drive may strike you as a paradox, but the truth is … putting a framework around your ingenuity is the key.
Systems set your imagination free because you’re no longer bogged down by the details that get in the way.
The greatest artists on the planet used structure to bring their creativity to life
What do Steven King, Ernest Hemingway and Pablo Picasso all have in common?
Yes, they’re great creatives in their own craft … but they all used structure as a gateway to allow their creative genius to flow.
So if you’re fighting the idea that systems and structure are good for your creative business … watch this where I’ll share advice from three famous artists.
3 structures to get your creative juices flowing
1. Remove distractions
Steven King advocates for a space where you can have privacy from those people and things that only serve to take you away from connecting with your craft.
“The space can be humble … and it really needs only one thing: A door you are willing to shut. The closed door is your way of telling the world that you mean business.”
2. Create a ritual
Rituals provides a focal point that serves to stimulate your inner vision.
They’re your artistic backdrop equipping you with comfort and familiarity that are essential to opening the gate to your imagination.
“When I am working on a book I write every morning as soon after first light as possible. “
3. Capture your ideas
Many creatives will attest to the fact that creative ideas just appear regardless of the time or situation.
How many times have you been in the shower or at the grocery store, and bam! a great idea whacks you in the side of the head.
Picasso produced 178 sketchbooks in his lifetime and used them to explore themes and make compositional studies until he found the right idea and subject for a larger painting on canvas.
“What I capture in spite of myself interested me more than my own ideas.”
