Create First

Nothing else matters... at first.

“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.” — Carl Jung

How do you get started?

Just create.
Yep, that’s it.

And how do you create?

Let your mind wander.
Follow your interests.
Experiment.
Explore.

Create for yourself.
Cast aside expectation.
Create for the joy it brings.
Laugh in the face of judgment.

Keep it fun.
Keep it small.
Share with others.

Creativity is non-linear.
You can’t plan it.
You can’t force it.

It must breathe!

What about...
Tweak your social media profiles.
Stand up your web site.
Start an email list.
Build your brand.
Find your niche.
Generate leads.
Sell products.
Build funnels.

Pressure, pressure, pressure!
No, no, no!

Those What Abouts come later.
Focus only on your flame of creativity.
Nurture it, for the slightest breeze will extinguish it.

Let experience be appropriated to the flame.
Until creating is once again like breathing.
Like it was in the child long ago.


🤔 Food for Thought:

How many times must your flame of creativity blow out, because you fail to make it your focus?

Why must you persist in putting the What Abouts before the consistent act of creation?


⚙️ One Small Step:

There is a wealth of advice on the What Abouts. Lock it all away until you learn to skip from one moment of flow to the next creating your heart’s desire. You were born with the spark of creation. Kindle it. That’s how you get started.
