You come up with a brilliant idea
You are so swamped you have no time for it…
Are you really fully productively ‘swamped’ though?
That is a different question
But what happens after a few of these brilliant ideas don’t get any space?
What happens after ignoring these ideas becomes a habit?
Whatever you’re doing,
if you can’t be creative,
if you can’t put your creativity to use,
then what’s the fucking point of it all?
If your head is a creative one then it’s also one that loves to foster creative ideas.
And if your best creative ideas become the source of your frustration then you are miserable and suffering without even acknowledging it.
Creativity is like an orgasm!
Holding it back is a frustrating waste of bliss!
Release release release
And maybe you will realize what’s the true meaning of life!
This isn’t some feel-good motivation crap.
After facing the frustration for so long I started six different blogs simultaneously, and wrote 50 articles over three weeks… Call this amid running a SaaS startup.
And surprisingly it didn’t distract me from my ‘job’ of running my company.
Instead, the creative pursuit actually helped me in my job more than I can describe in words.
- It helped me crush all the psychological barriers that were preventing me from doing what I was truly capable of.
- It helps me develop a process to manage multiple different opportunities simultaneously instead of being always in a fire fighting mode.
- It helped me set and keep deadlines for the first time in my life.
- It helped me come up with and execute campaign ideas that were previously unthinkable.
So what’s the point?
Your creativity is supposed to be the source of your bliss!
Not your frustration!
Of course, there are pitfalls to following your creativity.
