Efficient Creativity: The Six-Week Audio Series

The first week is FREE — click here.

 

This six-week audio series on Efficient Creativity is the brainchild of Julianna Baggott – bestselling and critically acclaimed author of over twenty books, as well as professor and mother of four. She explains her own process, developed amid chaos, and demystifies the creative process as seen through the lens of famous creatives and innovators and contemporary research. She looks at everything from sleep to shame, from food to fear, drawing wisdom from Emerson to Ang Lee to Alvin Ailey – with a little Tedy Bruschi thrown in for good measure.

Kafka once wrote, “Time is short, my strength is limited, the office is a horror, the apartment is noisy, and if a pleasant, straightforward life is not possible, then one must try to wriggle through by subtle manoeuvres.” Baggott has spent her life figuring out these manoeuvres in order to create a sustainable creative process.

And she offers what she’s learned—and sometimes obsessed over—to you. Her hope is that you can get to know your own creative processes, demystify it, and put it to work.

WHEN THE IDEA APPEARS, AS IF BY MAGIC…

She breaks down how it works and how you can develop it as a practice of your own.

HOW TO COURT IDEAS AND HOLD ONTO THEM TIGHTLY…

Baggott looks at the ways in which we self-sabotage by throwing away our best ideas, and, more importantly, why we do it; how Shakespeare screwed everyone over but also set us free; how you can choose not to lean in or lean out, but enjoy the power of swaying; and how some people need quiet and solitude, but also can thrive with noise and distraction.

HOW TO INCUBATE THE IDEA… 

Baggott discusses how to protect the idea while consciously creating an environment in which you’re more likely to hit a state of flow — that blissful and sometimes elusive state during which everything comes at you so fluidly that you’re not even fully aware of the passage of time or even really a sense of self.
