A common creator’s dilemma is to have more ideas than time, and to subsequently feel overwhelmed and stuck. Another common creator’s dilemma is the dreaded creative block, often followed by procrastination and a search for the creative muse.
Daily doing beckons the creative muse.
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 to life. The creator’s dilemma is diminished in the “daily den of doing”.

All the paints in the painter’s kit… all the words in the writer’s head… all the songs in the composer’s heart… none become anything without daily diligence, dedication and determination.
Playing with “D” Words…
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.
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 his 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 she appears, a presence felt strewing stardusted ideas with abandon. And some… some land on my paper.

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 she can hand over some of the things that aren’t her favorites… that are not her strengths to others so she can focus all the more on the art she loves most.
You will get there. Keep creating daily and the creative muse will become your best friend and constant companion.
