In my experience, most adults struggle a bit when it comes to creativity. Either they don’t think they are creative, they don’t see the value in creativity, or a combination of the two. This is really...

Last week we focused on defining creativity and making the case that we are all creative. I proposed the idea that creativity is more about sourcing our ideas from within ourselves. In other words, from a place of internal perspective rather than overly relying on outside perspectives or the influence of others.
Creativity is more about the process than the final product. If you missed that post, you can see it here: Are You Creative?

I’m excited to add a new dimension to the weekly Life Design Center vlog…book reviews. I’m sensing a need and I hope this will serve as a useful response. We are faced with an ever-increasing amount of information but the amount of time and energy we have available is decreasing. I hope my bi-weekly book reviews will help tip the equation a bit more in your favor.
With each review, I’ll try to highlight the key arguments of the book and also describe the areas of Life Design where I think the book is most applicable.

Significant change, requires more than simple resolve. Resolve is the first step, to be sure. However, without a process resolve will fizzle out and you’ll be left exactly where you started.
I recently listened to author Dan Brown’s Masterclass and he had a chapter titled, “Protecting Your Process.” In this lesson, Dan explains that writing a novel is a long process, not something you can accomplish overnight, no matter how inspired you may be. Writing a novel requires you to implement and stick to a process of writing, a little bit each day. The same logic holds true for making changes to our Life Design.
Most of us intuit this. If we want to get in shape, one trip to the gym isn’t going to get us there. If we want to strategically...
