Have you ever stared at a blank screen or page awaiting your creative muse to rain inspiration upon you? You’re not alone.
A common creator’s dilemma is to have more ideas than time, and to subsequently feel overwhelmed and stuck. However, the opposite but still common dilemma is the dreaded creative block.
Creative blocks often lead to procrastination, and waiting for the creative muse.
Whether you get stuck from the overwhelm of too many ideas, or high and dry in the desert of creator’s block, the same solution serves to get you going in the right direction.
Daily doing reduces obstacles to progress.

Daily doing beckons the creative muse.

How to Boost Your Creativity, Productivity and Success
The short answer is to create daily.
Everyone falls into creative voids on occasion, but the habit of creating daily will see you through. It is in the maturing of your craft through daily diligence that gets the job done.
Daily doing beckons the creative muse, and is the hallmark of the true artist and craftsman, who works because he loves, and loves because he works bringing his art—and his heart—to life.
All the paints in the painter’s kit… and words in the writer’s head… all the songs in the composer’s heart… none become anything without daily diligence, dedication and determination to do the work.
Creative dilemmas are diminished in the den of daily doing.

Playing with “D” Words…
Well… because we are writers, after all. 😉
The den of daily doing is furnished with diligence, dedication and determination. Over time, these become the well worn favorites that decorate the artist’s dwelling… as comfortably familiar as her favorite chair.
In the den of daily doing, the creative fires are always stoked.
To be successful at bringing more of our creativity into the world, we don the craftsmen’s hat and “go pro“. The craftsman carefully brings her creation to life, loving it into being over solitary time in meditation deep.
The muse lives in the den of doing. With head to task does she appear, a presence felt strewing stardusted ideas with abandon. And some… some land on my paper.

The Entrepreneur’s Task: to bring ideas to life.
The Artist Entrepreneur… and the Entrepreneur Artist
The world of the artist and the world of the entrepreneur are not so far apart. The successful artist is she who can find the joy in creating both.
Over time he can hand over some of the things that aren’t his favorites… that are not his strengths to others so he can focus all the more on the art he loves most. Until then the most successful creators are those who embrace the middle way of the artist entrepreneur.
You will get there. Keep creating daily and the creative muse will become your best friend and constant companion. The more you create, the more work you will have to share in the world. Learning and implement daily, and the craft of your business will also thrive.
Imagine what you will accomplish at the end of a year through the simple discipline of daily creating.
