This is a question I’ve grappled with for years, both in my own life and in the context of people in general.
What is it that allows certain people to consistently operate in what Marie Forleo and Danielle LaPorte call their “genius zones,” where most others run for cover and repeatedly abandon endeavors whenever the angsty fear and anxiety get loud enough to convince them either they’re not worthy or the project’s not worthy?
I’m also a weird blend of science-based spiritual skeptic, so rather than approaching this question from a crunchy, pop-psych or pure personal development standpoint, I’m more drawn to hard-science, published research, case-studies and verifiable processes and strategies.
In the dorky world I inhabit, neuroscience is hot.
After spending the last few years going fairly narrow and deep on the issue, a core set of workflow adaptations, personal practices, environmental elements and behavioral tools began to emerge. They don’t define the world of possible interventions, rather they represent a small collection of practices that yield stunning returns on the investment of time and energy. And, as a side-benefit, they help you live with far more equanimity and joy in a world where disruption is the new black.
I thought it might be both fun and informative to create an online tool based on the above-metrics to help you determine whether you’re creating, innovating, performing and just plain living anywhere near your potential and, if not, where you might want to focus your energy.
With that, the Creative Mindset Audit™ officially launches today—a fast and easy, 27-question online assessment to help go you get a better understanding of how well you’ve primed your mindset, workflow and environment for high-level creativity, innovation and performance. Go here now to take the Creative Mindset Audit™.
