I’ll Take The Artists Way

Above all I’ll take The Artists Way. Therefore I’ll-Take-The-Artists-Way-Bob Davis Podcast 1029 is about how creative businesses may not respond to the usual business advice.

Wearing Two Hats

Firstly I have come to the conclusion wearing two hats isn’t always a good idea.

For example I’m a Podcaster, Blogger, Writer and a sales guy.

At Odds With Myself

On the contrary trying to be a creator and sales guy might be at odds for a creative business.

Personal Inventory

Consequently during this season of personal inventory and review I’ll Take The Artists Way.

Certainly I’ll continue to serve current and future sponsors.

Shifting Focus To Bliss

But I am shifting my focus.

No More Limiting Creativity

To clarify I have decided to cut loose certain approaches that have limited my creativity.

The Need To Explain

Even more, practices that have made me feel the need to explain away my creativity.

Or Apologize

Or even apologize for it.

No more.

Principles Of A Creative Business

That is to say I am rededicating myself to the principles of a creative business.

Overnight Success

For example we creators might work blissfully for a long time and no one notices. It isn’t for everyone, but if you’re a creative, it’s the life.

After Years Of Work

Subsequently something goes viral or you build up over time and suddenly you’re an ‘overnight’ success.

Creative Upside Can Be Huge

In other words the potential of a creative business is unlike the potential of any other kind of ‘predictable’ business.

Best Practices? No Thanks

Most importantly we can’t rely on ‘best practices’ and screaming motivational coaches.

What’s A Spread Sheet?

Moreover we don’t respond to spread sheets and restrictions because we just don’t care.

Creators Can Cash In

In addition the truth is a creative business may have more upside potential than a bunch of apartment buildings and tire shops.

You never know.

Unlock The Potential

And the only way to unlock that potential is to concentrate on one’s own creative impulse.

Decision Time

In short I can observe and orient a thing to death while trying to wear two or three hats.

This is a time for decision.

Action Time

But most importantly it is a time for action.

In I’ll-Take-The-Artists-Way-Bob Davis Podcast 1029 I’ll explain what I am doing and why.

Modern World Life Hacks Summer Storm-Podcast 677

I think it is fair to say we’re living in a completely different time than just a few years ago. Messaging, alerts, constant interruptions. People complain they’re working twenty four hours a day because they have to be available around the clock. In┬áModern World Life Hacks Summer Storm-Podcast 677 I share my hacks to stay sane. What are yours?

Maintaining Composure

Especially relevant is the need to stay in a positive state of mind. This can be difficult when you’re responding to text messages, emails, clients or bosses at three in the morning. Content creators and creative people can find the need to stay connected constantly the most difficult.

Enjoying A Summer Storm

My contribution to your peace of mind? Sitting on the porch during a summer storm. What about the things that interest me. Excite me. Keep me in a positive, productive and creative state of mind? Hopefully my list will spur you to think up your own list. Things that really keep us going. In Modern World Life Hacks Summer Storm-Podcast 677.

Nobody Ever Said It Would Be Easy

Life is not easy. Turns and shifts happen without warning. Sometimes these changes are welcome. Sometimes not. People leave. Jobs end. Companies are sold. Plans shift. There are times when the changes are good. Finally, shifts and changes that are later looked upon as a ‘blessing’.

My Hacks

Travel is a big hack. A great way to shift my thinking. I don’t even care where I go anymore. Just going is half the battle. Especially road trips. Going to exotic far away places is also good. There are times though, when all you can manage is a weekend getaway.

The famous Bob Davis News Cleanse changed my life. It brought the realization that I did not need to maintain a twenty four hour news watch and freed me to create content outside of the confines of ‘the news’. Reading, walking, sitting quietly, or doing anything that shifts your thinking even short term are great for hacking the madness that is modern life.

The Old World Is Never Coming Back

In conclusion, we live in a great age. As we modernize we live among the trappings of an old world. Some of the old things are still around, but the pace of life will never go back to what it was. There are new pressures. New ideas. While we adjust to these new approaches its important to maintain our balance.
