In my last post I shared the 5 Creative Stages training which is a part of the ‘Your Creative Work’ program coming to Spark Your Being this fall.
In that post there is one particular type of Creative that I mentioned — and that I want to spend more time on here. This type of Creative is …
The Creative Fence Sitter!
The Creative Fence Sitter has a great idea. Knows she is creative and that her soul is yearning to express it but she is also … STUCK!
- Playing small
She has one foot in and one foot out of the creative life she wants so desperately to be living. She is constantly thinking about her creativity but isn’t able to make that next step.
Take that one step and break it down. Perhaps you want to start podcasting, and your first step in your podcasting project is to decide where you will host it … well, that step is a BIG step that might send you into procrastination or confusion. The remedy? Break it down smaller, more manageable pieces.
For example, you can do some brainstorming around it, journal, create a list of pros and cons, do some online research, and ask other people with podcasting experience. Each one of those things becomes an action item . (And the truth is, that some of those can be broken down even further … )
And these are only a few ideas of how you can break down that huge, too-big step. Then, choose one of those smaller action items and do it! Pick the step that seems easiest, and get support if you need it.
As my Hand Analysis Mentor Pamelah Landers always says …
“The next step is the easy step.”
