Simplicity In A Storm

Most importantly there is simplicity in a storm because all you can do is sit there and experience it! Learn more in Simplicity-In-A-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 1070.

Life Is Complicated

https://www.aconsciousrethink.com/18984/why-is-life-so-complicated/

The Nomad Solution

Certainly nomads will agree being out in the middle of nowhere better than being in a city.

Energy

Firstly there’s a kind of energy in forests, mountains and deserts.

Smooth.

Calm.

Opposite In The City

Secondly you get the opposite energy in cities.

Some Small Towns Not Good

Even more these days in small towns.

Which is a surprise.

Suburbs?

For instance the “Suburbanization” of small towns like Flagstaff, Arizona.

Carnival In The Red Rocks

Or the “Wisconsin Dells” approach of places like Sedona, Arizona.

Finally there is the Internet.

Zombie Companies

And modern companies.

Lists

We all have our lists.

I’ll give you my list in Simplicity-In-A-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 1070.

Experience A Full Monsoon Storm

But for this podcast it is the opportunity to finally fully record one of the west’s magnificent Monsoon storms.

Headphones Please

Even more the chance for listeners to sit back, put their headphones on and have the same experience I had recording.

There Has To Be A Better Way

Above all I can’t help feeling like there has to be a better way.

I Just Don’t Know What It Is

To clarify all these ‘improvements’ were supposed to make our lives easier.

How’d That Turn Out For You?

In short I am not sure anyone thinks it turned out that way.

Hitting The Road Is The Antidote

Above all this is the main reason I hit the road.

And that is true of many others.

Relax

In the same vein there is a very relaxing approach to life when you’re a nomad.

Hey! There’ No Signal In Paradise

Especially when you find yourself unable to check your social media, send and receive messages, or even make a call.

It Will Have To Wait

It’ll have to wait, whatever it is!

Nature Rewires Us

Likewise there’s something about nature that has rewired my city brain.

Storms Sun Vistas And Fun

In conclusion I’d rather be out here with the storms and sun, vistas and fun, than the city.

After that what can one say?

The Dream Is Alive…In Portland?

Sitting and drinking in cafes in urban neighborhoods just doesn’t compare to the mist after the rain, a fire, and a simple cup of coffee after the rain.

I’ll-Take-The-Artists-Way-Bob Davis Podcast 1029

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.

Tough-Decisions-Ahead-Bob Davis Podcast 957

Tough Decisions Ahead

These days it seems like tough decisions are ahead for everyone. Me too. Let’s talk about it in Tough-Decisions-Ahead-Bob Davis Podcast 957.

Things Aren’t What They Seem

First of all the truth is things aren’t what they seem. At least that’s my takeaway.

When The Going Gets Tough

Second of all when the going gets tough, decisions have to be made.

Normal People Take The Brunt

Most importantly normal everyday people are the ones that struggle the most with choices.

Ranches, Road Trips and Renters

I can’t tell you how many people I know who have told me about some plan to move to a ranch in New Mexico, go out on the road, or take in renters.

More Stimulus?

Even more there’s talk of more stimulus and government spending. And here I thought the economy was going strong.

A Sea Of Nonsense

I say we’re living in a sea of nonsense. I’ve already talked about how useless political content is in a world awash with speculation and ‘experts’ at every turn.

Turning A Blind Eye To So Called Coaches

In addition what about the nonsense these so called ‘coaches’ are spewing on social media.

Content Has To Change

I’ve also certainly talked about how I can change my own content in that regard.

One Spectacle After Another

Meanwhile with so many ‘one day stories’ all the copycat content about the debates seems silly. Especially with the spectacle of the president’s back and forth with Covid-19 and the hospital over a recent weekend.

Back To Those Tough Decisions

Above all we’re living in a time when soon most of us will be forced to make tough decisions.

In Tough-Decisions-Ahead-Bob Davis Podcast 957 I wonder how my listeners and subscribers approach those decisions.

My Experience

Further I tell a few stories I’ve gleaned from my experience and from others.

Curve Balls and Wild Pitches

Sometimes life throws curve balls.

Similarly I have to wonder if we’re about to receive the mother of all wild pitches.

In conclusion how do we make those tough decisions?
