Creative Hygiene – Love Your Work, Episode 152

November 15 2018 – 07:30am

creative hygiene

One thing I’ve discovered in talking to many of my guests is that your creative voice doesn’t magically appear in your mind. You have to put in the work, and then your voice emerges from that work.

But to do that work, you have to keep your creative machinery working. You have to keep putting out work, and you have to keep cleaning out the waste that gets in the way of putting out that work.

That’s what I’m talking about on this week’s episode. I call it “creative hygiene.”
