The B&E Podcast #159
“Rooting Out Guilt In the Creative Process”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
Oh yeah, baby! This is a good one full of practical and philosophical wanderings. We uncover some insidious effects of guilt on our creativity as well as find some simple and profound steps to push through resistance.
POINT #1: “WHAT’S GOING ON?”
– Sometimes when you don’t know what to do, or where to begin, or don’t even feel like doing anything. That’s fine. Whoever said you had to feel great? Start with where you are. Say, “fuck it” and see what comes out. Let it go and let it move through you.
POINT #2: “OH THAT GUILT”
– We play a lot of mind games with ourselves when it comes to “being busy” or what we “should be doing”. We use guilt as a way of making us feel better about what where we think we fall short or aren’t doing enough. Stop it. It’s a silly game.
POINT #3: “FIND YOUR WINS”
– It doesn’t matter how big or small, how profound or mundane, find wins for yourself every single day. Find three wins every single day that will make you feel as though you won the day. Try it.
