@vasta Me too! And weirdly, when I let go of worrying about output and focus on the creative as process, I end up with more output... ;) If we ever knew how much fear disables us we would never listen to it again.

@Annie That’s so true! My colleagues always ask how I manage to be so prolific, despite our teaching load. It’s about staying in the process, letting the process be it’s own reward. The output always follows.

@Annie I enjoyed how you separate the process from the output. It's very easy to focus on the output and not the doing. Thanks for the great read.

@richnewman That’s it! Trusting the process rather than worrying about the result removes 95% of the mental burden too (worry, self-doubt, etc.) so then we can focus and create. So much of being prolific is about internal thinking habits.

@agundy Thanks, I’m glad you enjoyed it! Separating process from output is really helpful for me.

@Annie great stuff ... Thankyou ... saved to read again on a bigger machine ,, I tend to scan, not read, on a phone.

Have you ever heard the Gladwell podcast about creativity ... highly recommend it.

It’s called Hallelujah.
