What’s the value of focus? These days, finding our ability to focus is a rare and valuable thing. We seem to always be all over the place, wandering online, consumed with a love for possibility. We have many project possibilities, and we like to keep our options open.
As creative people, we often have a lot of creative projects. It can feel good to have a sense of possibility. We sheepishly claim that we suffer from Bright Shiny Object Syndrome.
Much of the self-help space profits from the confusion we have over what to do, where to focus, what to make. Often mastermind groups are devoted to people who are figuring out what they are doing. We can live in an endless loop of ‘figuring it out’.
But here’s the thing that actualized creatives know: It feels incredibly good to focus. Focusing on and finishing one project brings us to a level of creative maturity that flirting with many projects never will.
I just got an email from a client who finally launched her thing. She told me about all the feelings she felt. And that despite the angst of getting it out there, on the other side was such a sense of joy and empowerment. This is way richer than the feeling of being ‘all over the place’.
The Original Impulse Atelier is designed for people who are ready to take that passion project off the back burner and put it squarely in front of them on the making table.
What’s so cool about the Original Impulse Atelier is that over the course of 11 months, when you stick with one project, you learn how to ride through the difficult spots that show up for any project. You develop new creative competencies that help you not only stay with this project, but with all your future projects.
Focus feels good. I’ve seen members of the Original Impulse Atelier thrive like never before when they sink into the joy and relief of focusing on one thing.
The Atelier is a working sanctuary where you enjoy the focus on one project. Where when you bump up against the obstacles and hurdles, you have a cohort of fellow creatives who get it and who encourage you to get back up and keep going. Or take a rest, if that’s what’s called for!
