I’m working on my next book, publishing with the fabulous team at Portfolio and I’m deep into it already.
The working title is Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt Into Fuel for Brilliance.
Though, as often happens, that’s not necessarily the final title.
This will be a very different book than Career Renegade. It’s a bigger idea book that goes deep into the psyche that fuels and, at times, royally screws with the creative, growth and innovation processes of artists, entrepreneurs and even corporate innovators, with a strong focus on the role of uncertainty and fear.
I can tell you, from the interviews I’ve done, the research I’ve uncovered and the contemplation I’ve suffered enjoyed, it’s already changed my own creation process and even the way I live each day in a pretty profound way. And, it’s kindled a fascination with collaboration, mentoring and co-creation as well.
Which is where you guys come in…
1. Join my Creation Tribe.
I’m beyond blessed to have such an amazing, thoughtful family here. And, I’d like to be able to both tap your genius and share more details, questions, insights and ideas with you as I write. But, not all of that is right for this blog.
So, I’m creating a special “Creation Tribe” and inviting you to join in this journey…
What does that mean? As a member of my Creation Tribe, you’ll get occasional book-insider e-dispatches, progress updates, potential sneak peaks at some of the content and some the things I’ll be doing to launch the book. I’ll also very likely reach out to you here and there to bounce ideas, questions, topics, chapter titles and who knows what else off of you.
You’ll get deeper access to my creation process in exchange for me getting to tap your insights and asking the occasional favor (ya know, regular stuff like “pay my mortgage this month, send brownies, help me solve nuclear fusion…that type of thing). And, this very likely won’t just stop with the book. Over the next 12-months, I’ll be building and revealing a number of cool creative endeavors and as a member of my Creation Tribe, you’ll know about them and potentially even share in their creation and launch before anyone else.
If you’re interested, all you need to do is enter your name and email in the form below, then click on the link in the confirmation email that’ll follow a few seconds later.
2. Want to actually BE in my next book?
I’ve done a ton of interviews for the book already, but I’m still looking for a few more great stories of people who’ve triumphed over long-term creative journeys and successfully built bodies of work, careers, companies, books, works of art, etc.
I’m looking for everyone from hackers to painters and boostrapped entrepreneurs to corporate innovators. People who’ve been in the journey long enough to have weathered challenges, fear, uncertainty and other mental gremlins, figured out how to turn them into fuel and create genius.
While there are a number of huge names who’ll be profiled in the book, I’d really love to be able to learn from and feature members of my tribe along with them.
If you’re interested, please share a few sentences about your journey and what you’ve created in the comments below and I’ll follow-up if it looks like there’s a fit. Or, if you’d prefer, you can just email me at jonathan @ jonathanfields dot com.
