So this time of year it's really easy to let your creative practice slide, because there's so many things going on.
A few years ago, I discovered a method that my teacher Marney Makridakis calls Turn Your Doubts into Dares.
It’s incredibly simple but brilliant: You take the thing that you feel like you can't do and you dare yourself to do this.
So if you want to create a new product by Christmas, but you fear that the holidays are too busy, instead of talking yourself out of it, you say, “But what if I could?”
And “How might I do this?”
It sends the doubts and fears scrambling.
Try it next time you think you can’t. Maybe you’re right ... but what if you aren’t?
