Productivity For Creative People

How to get creative work done in an "Always On" world

A different approach to the leadership games

Extract from the book details:

We are living in an age of unprecedented creative stimulation--via the internet, social media, all-pervasive technology, and an "always on" working culture.

Which means we are living in an age of unprecedented distraction from focused creative work--from all the same sources.

First, computers and the internet transformed the work we did at our desks. Then along came smartphones to transform our social lives and make our work mobile.

Productivity for creative people in an Augmented Reality

Now we have our work, our network, our media, and our social media with us wherever we go. Augmented Reality (AR) is layering more and more virtual elements over the physical world we inhabit, and Virtual Reality (VR) promises us escape to unlimited virtual worlds.

The pace of change is exciting, overwhelming, and unstoppable.

Downsides to your creative work

And creators are increasingly discovering a downside to the brave new world:

  • countless distractions and interruptions
  • endless email
  • anxiety about falling behind
  • difficulty concentrating
  • aches and pains from too much time at the keyboard
  • Dig a little deeper, and the biggest concern for many creatives is a nagging sense that their most important work is being left undone.

Creative Age Opportunities Challenges

If you're excited by the opportunities of the creative age, but worried about the effect of all those interruptions and digital distractions on your creative work, Productivity for Creative People has been written for you.

A poet and creative entrepreneur, he is the author of Motivation for Creative People and Resilience: Facing Down Rejection and Criticism on the Road to Success. He is also a co-author of the bestselling books from 99U, Manage Your Day-to-Day and Maximize Your Potential.

Nan Dòmi est une magnifique danse de l'art de la parole avec la simplicité des coeurs sincères pour offrir une étude authentique de la conscience en éveil par la voie du vodou.

Nan Dòmi en éveil...

"...le vodou a une pratique publique extérieure - de rituels et de cérémonies-, mais également une dimension mystique intérieure qui a plus vocation à être pratiquée en privé...

Avant Nan Dòmi, les travaux sur le vodou se sont concentrés sur la première, c'est-à-dire la dimension publique, extérieure, de la religion et des us et coutumes qui l'entourent. Mimerose P. Beaubrun s'est proposé, tout d'abord, d'effectuer un travail du même ordre.

Motherpeace by Vicki Noble | artpreneure-20
Vicki Noble challenges us to celebrate
our ancient peaceful heritage
and to reclaim our right
as a people to a life without war.

Motherpeace was written as if I was talking to four particular friends. In this diverse group. the first friend is a feminist sister who, in addition to the struggles to improve the quality of our everyday lives, wants to recover a vision of the Goddess and the kind of society that would honor her.

My second friend uses a traditional tarot deck, as millions do, but is excited to hear about a wholly new set of tarot images that, while drawing upon tradition, recast it to embody more fully the lives and aspirations of women.

Ancestral Voices: Esoteric African Knowledge

A different approach to the leadership games

An educational documentary spanning two continents, opening up a much-needed debate about traditional African spiritual systems; their cosmologies, ideologies and underlying ethical principles.

Modern science no longer refutes the origins of mankind being in Africa and similarities in the cosmological ideologies of African esoteric systems with those found in many established world religions today suggest that it was not only people that migrated, but also concepts and themes that then provided the bedrock for the formation of other religious faiths.
