The 5 Cycles of the Creative Process

How Knowing Them Will Help You Achieve Anything

Are you in the process of creating your own business and already feel behind with your 2020 goals?

Our perception of how long change should take, what’s required, and the obstacles and complications along the way, is jaded. Your life isn’t a carefully montaged HGTV show where we see the “before and after” in a neat sequence of short clips.

In my case, I had to learn this lesson quite literally. I’m a huge fan of HGTV and can hardly wait for Island of Brian to resume. Binge-watching home improvement shows had me actually believing I was a designer, until I was quickly acquainted with the “reality” part of TV when our major condo renovation didn’t transform smoothly in 60 minutes.

It’s not that I can’t be a designer– it’s the process of change itself that I needed to tenderize and reformulate. Or in my case, bring into consideration. In other words, I can’t be a designer simply by watching a show, no matter HOW many episodes you watch. I needed to roll up my sleeves and make a few mistakes, feel that discontent with the “final product” to understand and learn how to make it better. Each time I do it, I’m a little bit more of a designer than I was last time! The cool thing about HGTV is how EASY they make it look– but what we’re seeing is years and years of mistakes, tears, setbacks, breakthroughs, and successes. Change requires commitment, consistency, and compassion. It’s called the CREATIVE PROCESS and it applies to anything we want to create in form.

All kinds of longings appear in my office, often as discontent, maybe even depression. Because there is something so unsatisfying, whether that’s a different way to live my life than the daily corporate grind or, whether that’s a loving relationship, family, children, more space for my artistic projects. Really welcome dissatisfaction!

In this episode Kerry Parsons, Founder of the Academy of Emerging Women, my coach, mentor and ROCK through the last 3 years of my business journey, and I unpack the 5 cycles of the creative process and how knowing them will help you achieve all that you desire.
