Productivity can often be a bane on the success for every creative entrepreneur.
First things first, let us all recognize that anyone reading the course has a true passion for creating and you may very well likely have made creativity part of your job. That is amazing. It is also really hard to create, especially when most of us release what we create into the world for critique, sometimes within minutes of creating it. Instead of seeing a space filled with other creative people who are also sharing art, we start to compare. We start to doubt the very thing that brought us so much joy. We start to doubt the very reason we stuck with our artistic journey in the first place. Let’s acknowledge some truths: social media can be extremely rewarding and has led me to meet some of my very closest friends and grow my business, but it can also be a place that fills us with negativity. We are not generally viewing each other’s art in a coffee shop or on the walls of a museum. Instead we are sending image after image into our social world for immediate approval (or gasp! disapproval!). I cannot think of a a more terrifying way to share what you create! If you are where I have been, seeing beautiful image after beautiful image can fill you with such a feeling of ugly comparison that you might feel a sudden urge to throw your phone into the nearest body of water. Yup, I’ve been there. Let’s zoom out for a second.
