STEP TWO – CHOOSE ONE PROJECT to prepare for you month long Creativity Diet – , AND MAKE IT EASY
Now that you have a Creative Goal, it means you have a vision of what ONE kind of creativity you want to put your attention to! It also means you’re off to a great start. And now is where you will want to break your ONE GOAL down into a smaller doable component. Based on what you’ve discovered pick one Creative Project that will get you closer to your vision.
Decide on ONE CREATIVE PROJECT.
One project in line with your creative goal. Keep it simple. Make it easy. One song, one painting, a five minute choreography, one chapter of your book. You have to decide. Answer the question, ‘What’s doable, realistically, on a daily basis, in my life right now?’ For example, if you want to be a songwriter then you’ll start with writing one song. Will you use paper and pen and an instrument. Or will you sing it into a phone app? Figure out the simplest way that suits you. If you’re going to paint, do you need to begin with line drawings or practicing perspective? You know what you can and need to do to just start. No book is going to tell you. You have to tell yourself. Choose one project and keep it simple.
TAKE STOCK OF WHAT YOU HAVE. MAKE A LIST OF WHAT YOU NEED.
First ask yourself this question: “In order to do this creative thing I want to do, what tools or skills do I already have?”Do your own inventory. What have you got and what do you need in order to show up and do one project.
Or for example, if you’re gong to paint, do you already have any supplies you’ll need? Or in other words do those acrylic paints you bought and hid still have any life in them? What supplies do you need? Do you have a sketch book full of ideas or is your masterpiece hiding somewhere in the back closet of your ten year old mind?
MAKE IT EASY!
The easier you make it, the more fun it will be to show up and stick to your month of Creativity Diet!
Start with the easiest thing and prepare what you need to do that.
