Feeling Undisciplined? Here’s Why.
Episode of
The Accidental Creative
Discipline is sometimes perceived as a “dirty word” because it’s interpreted as pushing through the muck, doing the unenjoyable activities first, and forgoing the chocolate cake for the steamed broccoli. However, I think this is a gross misunderstanding of the word. Discipline simply means making an agreement with yourself, and keeping it. That’s all. Nothing more complicated than that. The problem with discipline begins when we don’t understand which commitments are worth our effort, when we make too many commitments, when our commitments conflict, or when we are subject to the unclear commitments of others. On this episode, we address how to deal with moments when you feel undisciplined. This episode is sponsored by Skillshare.

Where Creative Pros Get Stuck

How To Dance With Uncertainty
Episode of
The Accidental Creative
One force that’s ever-present in any form of creative work is uncertainty. The reality is that you will never know – really know – what’s right. Is this good enough? Is it finished? Is it the right strategy? How should I spend my time/focus/energy today? Which idea should I run with? How can I sell this to my manager? Uncertainty is an uncooperative dance partner. You have to move with it – in concert, drawing from it, following its lead at times, but always with an eye on your next move – in order to do your best work. The worst thing you can do is allow uncertainty to paralyze you into inaction. On today’s show, we share three strategies for dealing with uncertainty. Today’s episode is sponsored by Freshbooks.

Taking An Idea From Hunch To Shark Tank and Beyond
Episode of
The Accidental Creative
Several years ago, toymaker Neal Hoffman had an idea for a new toy that would make his family’s life much more fun. The problem was, he had another job at the time, and this “side project” was likely to take up much more time and resources than he could spare. On this episode, we discuss Neil’s journey from idea, to an appearance on Shark Tank, to creating an internationally successful toy product that has changed the lives of families across the globe.
