5 Ideas To Start A Creative Productivity Superwave In Your Life!

When you feel compelled to make a major change or take a quantum leap in life, there’s nothing like absolutely boundless creative productivity to take life to the next level. But, when you’ve been in a cycle of doing things in the same way for months, years, or even decades… how do you begin?

I’m headed into a huge creative productivity superwave– the Love Feng Shui program, The Love Camp, is getting a glorious update and The School of Intention Professional Certification Program is hitting a new dimension in the new season ahead. Actually, I am already the early days of the wave and it’s getting exciting.  So, I wanted to share some of the best things I’ve learned in two decades of creating spaces and shaping energy to make big breakthroughs.

First, you don’t need to know exactly what the end product will be to get started in your super-creative process.  Creativity is the process of discovery. You don’t know what will work, quite often, until you try things in real life.

If you’re worried that you don’t know exactly what you want, and you hesitate to be “too creative” because you aren’t sure what direction you’ll land in, I can tell you that this energy will always bring you a bounty of blessings. I’ve experienced many of these sprints of creativity, dating back to grade school. I experienced the flow state (more on this flow state of genius is here), and in this space where time stood still and I had seemingly superhuman powers, I was hooked.  I have chased this feeling in so many ways, sometimes headed in a clear direction and sometimes on a detour headed to an unknown destination.  Regardless of whether I was “on my path” or taking a winding road, this energy would lift up my life and make me more magnetic to everything I needed.

Creativity is your magic and your manifesting power. This energy will always take you somewhere amazing.

Next, be extra-mindful of your energy during these times because creativity requires a whole lot of fuel. 

When I left my last “day job” and took off full time into this world of Feng Shui, the biggest creative productivity superwave of my life up to that point suddenly ensued. Everything multiplied so quickly– opportunity, ideas, projects, events, abundance– that I was averaging three cross-country flights a month, and logging 16 hour days.  I wish I knew then what I knew now, because it led me to a super-huge burnout, though I don’t regret a single moment of that era.

Since then, I’ve learned to make the most of these epic periods of focus, flow, and intuitive magic. You can be wildly productive, creatively unstoppable, without burnout and without stress.

Before you begin your industrious marathon, refuel yourself.

  • Get extra sleep.
  • Make sure you’re eating well, and often enough.
  • Drink enough water. I was stunned to learn that I regularly drink 1/3 of the “required” amount of water (1/2 to 1 oz of water per pound of body weight) unless I make the effort.
  • Try to avoid skipping sleep to work through the night into the early hours of the morning. Keeping a more regular sleep schedule can help you to be even more wildly productive, ad it’s excellent for optimal brain health.

Now, clear the decks of distractions.

If you have errands to run or other responsibilities, get them well scheduled or complete them asap so you can dive deep into your creative process. I didn’t “want” to drive around LA looking for new windshield wipers on a Sunday morning, but it created so much space in my week.

  • If you constantly get interrupted at home or at work, talk with those around you and explain that even a few uninterrupted hours in the day will help you to be so much more productive. When I had a job, I would put on headphones as a signal that I was unavailable to chat.
  • Try to get up a bit earlier or shift your schedule to stay up a bit later to capture uninterrupted quiet time where you can be wildly creative.
  • Keep your phone on airplane mode or shut it off as often as you can.

 

Do major planning that includes very new– incredibly new– actions. 

If you want the same results, do the same things. If you want new results, it’s time to be ingenious!

Brainstorm and create decisively new plans.

  • Give yourself deadlines, but make sure that you have a little flexibility in the time table so that you aren’t stressed.
  • Keep colored markers, pens, paper, sketch pads, and all the notebooks you need at the ready so that you can continuously brainstorm.
  • Try a practice of meditation every day, even for five minutes, to clear your mind before you set off to work.
  • Play music that motivates you as you set up and launch into your making and doing– this multi-sensory input adds extra layers to the flow of energy around you.

Exercise and stay in motion as much as you can. 

Motion creates momentum.

  • Take breaks to walk your dog or stretch.
  • Create a dedicated time each day– an ideal time for you– to workout in your best ways. A trainer or a fitness group can help you level up your fitness game and continue to make gains when you hit plateaus.
  • Several times a week, pour lots of energy into scrubbing, polishing, gardening, and more energizing at home.  When you clean, you create space and energetics that are potent and undeniably attractive. It’s a key to expanding your abundance!

Now, of course, you have lots to go and do. I hope these ideas, as they apply, can serve you in making this the most elevating creative superwave of your life!
