Hey |IF:FNAME| |FNAME| |END:IF| ð
Iâve been thinking about the ingredients for successâand specifically lifestyle, choices, routine, and sacrifices. One aspect thatâs intrigued me is what practice and preparation looks like.
Models eat strict diets and work out in particular ways so they look good on the runway. Sprinters warm up and practice and get coached so they run their best on race day. Violinists practice practice practice. They donât just pitch up and begin to playâit may look like it, but itâs far from the truth. Models arenât all natural beauty. They work at it. Sprinters enhance their natural talent with practice. Violinists need to practice because everyone will hear when they play a wrong note. Even rock stars go to band practice.
They all have moments theyâre preparing and practicing for. And everyday theyâre working on what matters for those moments.
For people who do creative work, for money or for fun, creativity is a big thing that matters. Itâs the thing that sets our work apart. Itâs the thing that breathes life into what we do. Creativity is powerful and important. And itâs something we can practice. So we shine when our moment arrives. So we create without thinking. So we feel confident. So we exceed expectations.
But we seldom consciously and intentionally practice our creativity. We often do the equivalent of pitching up on race day without having trained at all. And not only do we expect to compete but we expect to win. Thatâs ludicrous.
You may think that creatives spend tons of time working on their creativity: isnât that what we do all day every day? No. We donât. Weâre often doing everything and anything else. Administration. Taxes. Comparing. Social Media. Emails. Conferences. Meetings. Taking time off. And when we are creating itâs often doing what weâre told, trying to find the ârightâ way of doing things, or doing things the same way weâve always done them. Creativity isnât painting the Mona Lisa the same way every day. And it isnât a paint-by-numbers thing either. Creativity is creating new and different things. And this is something you can practice. https://ttkb.me/5min
So I made a self-contained class to help get your creative muscle in shape. Itâs called 5 Minute Creative Workouts: Get Your Creativity in Shape. Itâs practical and hyper-focused on bulking-up your creativity. There are 14 creative workouts I guide you through. Each one is only 5 minutes long, so you can easily fit it into your daily routine. The workouts will transform how you think and workâand maybe even how you live. During the class I go over how they help, how to do them, and a few variations to try out. I also show you how to design your own workoutâone that will suit your needs and situation.
Take the class on TapTapKaboom School. (https://ttkb.me/5min-ttk) Or take it on Skillshare. (https://ttkb.me/5min-ttk)
ðª Enjoy itâI hope you get your creativity in shape!
