CIP069: Why Aren’t You Making Progress?

Let’s say you’ve been at this game for a while now. You might have even been listening to The Creative Introvert Podcast since it began, way back at the start of 2017. You might have even been doing some of the stuff I’ve been recommending. Taking action, journalling, finding a supportive community, showing your work. […]

CIP067: Lack of Support

One of the most common challenges I come across in speaking to a range of creative introverts in my coaching , or in my online community or just out and about: is lack of support. It’s actually the one that’s surprised me most, even though I can 100% relate. It surprised me, because I assumed […]

CIP065: Worry, Distraction, Procrastination… OH MY!

I’m going to come out with a possibly controversial statement… Worrying helps our creativity. What what? Ok… think about it like this: most breakthroughs, whether they were in technology or art or anything else for that matter, came about because we were worried.

CIP056: Why, Why, WHY?! Finding Meaning and Purpose

The starting place for any adventure, project, collaboration, big leap, epic change, scary ass challenge that I take on is answering the simple question: Why? Why am I doing this? Why am I really doing this? Why does this matter to me? It’s not often I get asked these ‘why’ questions. More common is ‘How’? […]

CIP054: When To Quit and When To Stick

Do you feel like you’re ready to quit? Do you feel like you’re flogging a dead horse and beginning to look like a creazy person to you fam and friends? Do you have an iron-clad grip on a project or pursuit that is costing you time, money and energy – and your sanity? Then OH […]

CIP052: Does Routine Kill Creativity?

Caveat: I’m a bit biased with this, as an INTJ. That basically means… I love me some routine. I love dreaming up routines, I love planning routines, I love doing routines. But… I haven’t always been this way – at least, not consciously. When I worked a 9–5 job in a design agency, I couldn’t […]
