198 - 17 Ways to Tap Into Your Creative Joy (Even When the Pressure is On!)

The relationship between art and money is a real tricky one. One of the the biggest challenges stems from the fact that involving money into the equation puts pressure on your creativity. This is a major issue because, neurologically speaking, your best creative work comes from a place of play... AKA the opposite of pressure.

This means those of us that get paid to be creative for a living face a unique battle: how do we stay loose when the pressure's on? How do we consistently execute at our best, when trying TOO HARD gets worse results?

In this episode I share 17 tricks that really help me unlock my best work, even when the pressure is on.
