Have you ever looked at your email with scorn
and thought, “I could really use a unicorn
to sort and tidy this digital thorn?”

Be of good cheer, don’t be forlorn!
There sidekicks who are foresworn
to help fight our battles before we’re careworn.

Rank #2: Originality 26: Everything is Really Difficult

Podcast cover
Read more

Tempest and Aleen get back to the future (well, the present) with a new episode about the value of habits — and how and why they don’t work for everyone. They’ll discuss the importance of sticking with routines — and when to stop being productive long enough to do the things (like eating) that keep you productive. Also, “pantsers” vs. gardeners; how routines that prepare your brain can help you reach a more creative place; how to use bite-sized goals and rewards to keep working; feline obstacles to productivity; why “grit” is super annoying; and the importance of taking time to step back, look at the big picture, and be kind to yourself.

In eight years, Dan Moren wrote and edited and published a novel.
When it was done he sat back and hoped that it wouldn’t be a debacle.
If he’d done his job, it would warm his readers’ hearts to their cockles.
Now it’s here! Dan has created a new world, its danger full-throttle.
What would he change, how does he feel? Did he write a book without wobbles?

Sometimes you feel you've got to
Run away you've got to
Get away from the day-to-day things surrounding you
The things you make
Seem to go nowhere
And you've lost your light
For you try and try but just can't write!

"Drawing is a form of expressing story without using words," says our guest Grace Fong. In this episode, Tempest, Aleen, and Grace explore how artists tell stories, how they add to existing stories, why mind palaces are important, and how travel contributes to it all.

Sometimes life takes you
In unexpected directions
And to unexpected places
Like Portland
Or Broadway
Or entirely new continents and countries
And then, sometimes,
Life takes you right back to where you started
So you can foster your own creativity
And help others as they foster theirs

Look in the mirror and say,
"I'm good enough
I'm smart enough
and doggone it,
people like me.
I deserve to make money!"

Okay, that was a good first shot.
Shoulders back, stand tall!
You may not feel confident
but it's okay to fake it.
Speak clearly.
Project your voice.

You're good enough
You're smart enough
and doggone it,
people like you!
I certainly do.
You deserve to make money!

Ready? Say it again. Believe it.

Both here and elsewhere, you’ll hear it a lot:
you need to find new points of view to have creative thoughts
That means seeking out different perspectives
maybe with someone with different objectives
to create something
unusual
exciting
and
new
