Deadlines? Kill me now…

Scroll down to content

For some reason I have lost the ability to stick to a deadline with my creative work. I am busy with my business, sure, but I am not prioritising my creative writing. This blog is the only thing keeping me writing at the moment. Viva la Blog! I’ve been writing a post for a friend’s blog for weeks. Luckily she isn’t riding me for it; she’s got more on her plate than I do! I am preparing a 5 minute talk for the writer’s association on Saturday, so I guess I am writing…

I’ve been looking for an inspiring podcast about productivity but every podcast is so focused on ‘start-ups’ and ‘side-hustles’ and ‘entrepreneurs’. I’m gagging. Seriously! I just want a podcast for hubby to listen to – with no BS – about getting the most out of your time in your business. If I had any idea what I was doing I’d make a podcast like that. If anyone knows of a good productivity podcast please let me know??

I found one podcast this morning that is pretty good, although if he says ‘team’ or entrepreneur or start-up or hustle one more time someone is going to be dead…It’s the awkwardly-named Productivityist Podcast and the episode I listened to today features Rich Karlgaard and it’s all about late bloomers. It’s not about productivity, it’s so much more than that. Here’s his TedX talk.

How many of you feel like maybe you haven’t hit that sweet spot between your talent and your passion?

and then there’s “FOLLOW YOUR BLISS” the seriously misunderstood suggestion from Joseph Campbell. We’ve interpreted this as the idea that we must find our passion, that one thing that is going to set our world alight. This keeps so many people stuck though, because as Terri Trespicio says the idea of finding our passion can make us fearful of getting on the the wrong train, headed to the wrong future

Following your bliss was intended to be a suggestion that we follow what lights us up in the moment, what makes us curious, not desperately chase after that…one…thing.

In fact it’s the opposite…the trick is to just do something. Anything. Then do something else. Then take a break. Then do something else. Then smile. Then try something else. And sometimes you just need to relax and remind yourself that you’re doing all that you can and everything is going to turn out just fine.
