#92 What to do when inspiration is low
Do you struggle with planning your time for the week because you feel it dampens your creative flow?
In a recent coaching session with a client, she shared her resistance to planning because she always felt inspired to do things when she had other things planned for that time.
As a result, she felt that she couldn’t always act on those creativity or inspiration hits when they happened because the window of inspired action or creativity was lost.
Here’s the thing though. Inspiration and creativity come when we are in a specific emotional state.
We are not at the mercy of our emotions. We do actually have full control over them.
In this episode, we share how you can create creative and inspired moments on demand.
We talked about:
The effect of planning on your creativity and inspiration
Why planning isn't restrictive
Unconscious doing vs intentional action
The primitive brain and instant pleasure
Where creativity and inspiration really come from
Successful entrepreneurs don't wait for creativity to hit them
The power of a time audit
Being conscious of your natural rhythms
Training your brain and creating inspiration and creativity on demand
How you plan and schedule for creative moments
Creating your own flow state formula
