Recently we had a blast teaching our TestTrack program – our first step to our process for sustained creativity. One of the first things we mention is how we should be aware of our environment. For most of us, our current environment is not optimized for creativity. There are some factors that can hold us back. Fortunately we can get ourselves unstuck with a backup plan.A few weeks back I took a field trip to do some content videos. I had some internal distractions to overcome and even in a new outside environment there were some surprises. Here’s what I was up against:
There was a man in a green grape suit on the highway.
He was there to try to divert traffic to the market where I was recording. He was also trying to get them to honk their horns. I was concerned for my own concentration as well as the audio quality of my recording.
When I relocated farther from the green man, I was nearly sidetracked by a generous forest man who had just foraged wild greens and trying to get me to share his feast.So these are but a few examples of the craziness that happens when we set our intention to create. Yours may be less silly than mine that day, and yet you have the same ability to out-think them and simply get going with your content.
Here’s a tip: If it has a RECORD button, just press it. The rest happens almost on its own.
Let’s get going!
