Find Your Creative City – Love Your Work, Episode 98

November 06 2017 – 07:30am

creative city podcast

About two years ago, I was on a retreat in Mexico with some friends. We were each exploring what we wanted to do in our lives and careers. It took all week for me to admit it to myself: I wanted to double down on being a creator. I wanted to have conversations on this podcast, read books, and write books.

I wanted to make my creative output the top priority in my life. So, I moved off to Colombia to set up everything so that I could be fully-focused.

I had spent a lot of time in Medellín before, during a few “mini lives” I had done here. I always found that I got more work done here, and that it was better work, too.

So, as I was doubling down on being a creator, Medellín was the clear choice.

In this article, I’ll share with you how I picked the city where I could have the best creative output. Whether you feel like moving to another country or not, it will give you things to think about in optimizing your own creative output.
