You’re a creative person

Your creative workwriting, art, design, music, code... all of the above?is integral to who you are.

You have a complicated life full of responsibilities that you truly care about, possibly including a full-time job, a partner, children, aging parents, community commitments, and political involvements.

But you need to finish your self-generated creative work.

And right now? You're stuck.

The secret to getting it done is setting yourself up for success

During the 5 day Creative Compass Challenge, you will:

  • 🧭 Day 1: Stake your claim on your single most important creative priority, so that you know where to focus
  • 📅 Day 2: Design a (simple!) system to make getting started automatic
  • ⛔️ Day 3: Clear your dance card to make space for the work that matters most
  • ❤️ Day 4: Face down your inner bully who tells you your work isn’t worth it
  • Day 5: Draw your map to finishing! Identify your next step and start making real progress

At the end of the 5 day challenge, you'll have everything you need to finish your project in record time...without needing to finish your endless to-do list first!

From the outside, being stuck looks a lot like procrastination

When you end up procrastinating instead of making the creative work you dream of, it’s not because there’s something wrong with you. 

It's more likely because you're relying on pure willpower.

You're missing the few essential elements that make finishing feel EASY

Telling yourself "today's the day" and then simply trying to force yourself to get to work will leave you overwhelmed and scattered.

You'll derail your progress by shifting your focus to a new(!), exciting(!), and fun(!) project, or to some other domain of your life that's unrelated to your creative work, just to cross something (anything) off your list.
