In a way that felt like play, not work
Long enough to actually make something
To full speed ahead
And connected to your work again
Toward the work you care about most
Your first stop: That magical place between your brain and the rest of the world, where your best work is waiting to take shape:
Maybe you love writing. Maybe you used to love writing. What happened? I’m guessing you were shut down. Hard.
Let’s be clear: Writing isn’t a major; it’s a birthright. And there is absolutely no reason you can’t make good and fulfilling use of it to move your work forward.
When you write, you access your creative genius in ways that nothing else can. And you don’t have to be a writer to do it.
This 30-day audio program will help you break new ground on your new ideas, and gain momentum in developing, fleshing them out, and making them real and ready to share with the people you most want to reach.
It draws on the principles of the Gateless Writing Method which is designed to quiet the critic and invite ease into your creative process. Get out of your own way—and feel your own work expanding, instead of feeling constricted by fear and self-criticism.
Designed to tap your creativity, intuition, memory, and genius
That takes you through the daily exercise, so that you can write in real time
A guide that gives you insights and exercises for changing the way you approach your work
In your writing and work again, no matter what shape or form it takes
That comes from spending time on the stuff that matters to you
I knew I loathed the advice about following your passion, and I knew I wasn’t the only one.
And when I pitched it to a TEDx organizer who suddenly had a spot open, I had less than a month to figure out what I wanted to say about it.
I wrote my way into it. I didn’t know what I thought until I started writing—and that is precisely how I was able to crack this idea and land the talk—and then deliver it in just a few weeks.
That talk has nearly 6 million views, and has changed my life and career. I didn’t know more than anyone else; I had an idea and I worked it out on the page.
You can do the same thing in the next 30 days.
Your creative genius (which draws on an un-replicable blend of your ideas, stories, memories, expertise) has been sitting there, waiting for you.
The hardest part? Fighting off demands and distractions so that you can access it.
Do that, and you’ll be amazed what you can create.
