[VIDEO] Deep creativity and the jitters. Feel the doubt…and be of service anyway.

There’s a difference between the definition of happiness and the definition of joy. It’s valuable to be aware of this because when things get tough, logic might want you to default to despair, or utter sadness or worse, you might think you have to choose between hardship and joy, or support and separation, or light and dark…

6 opinions on having a creative opinion. (But only my opinions. Because…opinionated.)

May your heart be sweet. May your mind be clear. May your opinions be strong.

Criticising your creative process? No baby, no.

This is how I see my creative process now: Focused. Swift. Centered. Turned on. What changed? Nothing. Just my perspective. So, everything.

Purification. Pain. Passion. And marrying your soul. Or…How to tap your deep creativity.

If you want to tap into your deep creativity — the profound, unbridled, genius, life-infusing, widely useful and healing kind of creativity, then purification is essential.

Now, to get through such purification, you’ll need passion. You already know what that is. Fire, heart, big vision.

How do you know when your creation is finished? Like, you’re done working on it and it’s time to let it go.

Hey! AIM for perfection, but it’s out of reach. And hey! That’s okay, because you’ll probably land on something beautiful…maybe your work is really finished. It’s time.

Some fame, too much coolness, and the kindness that makes everything okay.

If you’ve been around any PFP’s for any length of time you’ll notice (and yes this is an overgeneralization but, not really), that almost everybody wants something from them.

You’ll do it when you’re ready.

There’s a lot of pressure to be ready now, yesterday, ASAP. Grow achieve push plow crank rank. But you’re ready when you’re ready. Think of all the times you pushed your friends to dump the fool they were with…for years…

The story of Freddy & the iPhone — and 4 questions for Creatives

I’ve been thinking on behalf of Creatives everywhere. I have some questions for us: What have you got in your archive that can be turned into art today? We’re so occupied with creating new and innovative that we can forget our past experiments or the ideas whose time hasn’t come yet. Remember that one idea you had…? Dust it off now and see if it’s got some glimmer to it….

Random notes on my writing process

I wrote The Fire Starter Sessions in 6 months. The Desire Map poured out in 3 months (but I didn’t leave the house for those three months. Not even kidding.) I write mostly late at night. I’m diligently trying to changing this habit and write more in the morning. I’m a night owl, so this is problematic. As much as I swear, it’s never fucking gratuitous…

What’s your Creativity Pattern?

As artists (and we’re all artists) we have patterns of creating. A way that we typically make things happen. A style in which we pull ideas down from the ethers and put them into form. It usually takes a while to figure out what your pattern of creativity is. You need to have cranked out a few projects, raised a few babies, made a few flops and masterpieces to have something to ‘retrospect’ on…
