13: How to Keep Promises to Yourself (Part 1)

When was the last time you kept a promise to yourself? Most of us have a poor track record at honoring our own goals, but that can change. Today's episode is Part 1 in a series on keeping promises to ourselves. Because who can we rely on to achieve our dreams, if not us? Strategy 1: learn to separate your thoughts and feelings from your actions. ACT! Don't wait for the ideal mindset or thought life to take action. Contrary to a lot of popular self-development, you don't need the right thoughts to take the right actions.

12: Tom Jones is My Hero (and Could Be Yours Too)

What's new pussycat? Tom Jones' creative career is a reminder of what is possible for us as creatives: longevity, persistence and a desire to serve an audience with our creative gifts for an entire lifetime. I saw Jones in concert and was BLOWN AWAY. The man still has it. We need more examples like this! We need to seek out and absorb the lives and stories of those we admire who have stayed in the creative game and devoted their lives to their art. If you don't have any inspirational figures like this, you need to find some! We often lack motivation because we lack vision. Folks who are farther along than we are can provide that inspirational vision. But we must seek them out.

9: Starting Dating the Future You

I'm guessing that you, like me, have choices and decisions we wish we had stuck with or done differently - last month, last year, or a decade ago. If only we could get ourselves to make those wise decisions TODAY! How grateful our future selves would be! Enter: future self continuity. This research shows that the more real we can make our future selves to our present selves, the more likely we are to act in ways our future selves will appreciate. I take this info and put it in the context of art-making and creative work and YES. I want you to take your future self out on a date.
