Welcome to Productive Flourishing!
First things first: hello!
Let’s unpack that a bit: Creative Giants are multi-talented Renaissance Souls with a compassion-fueled bias towards action, and Project World is the new world of work that’s divided into 3- to 5-year projects. Traditional careers are gone, and those who thrive in Project World are creative, compassionate, adaptable, and able to finish the stuff that matters.
People like us spend our days dancing in the void between who we are and who we could be. That gets us in a whole host of troubles, at the same time that it helps us co-create a better world for ourselves, our families, our communities, and the world at large.
Many Creative Giants gravitate toward entrepreneurship, freelancing, and other ways of being a self-sustaining professional creative, while others fall into leadership positions because of their talent and ability to get things done that others can’t. You’ll thus see content here that addresses a wide variety of ways that we can show up in the world – what our current job or project is is far less relevant than the root strengths and talents we cultivate or the weaknesses we strive to overcome throughout our lives.
The bedrock of our success is a combination of self-mastery and personal effectiveness, so a lot of our conversations focus on how to channel our time, energy, and attention into finishing the stuff that matters. The Creative Giants who harness their own power have no problem moving the world.
Now you know who we are and what we’re about. If this resonates with you, I’m glad you found us. You don’t have to hide out and play small around here.
There is a lot to digest here – nearly 1,000 posts and pages (and counting!) dating back to 2006, useful freebies, digital and physical products, services, and a lot more – and I get how hard it can be to find your way around if you’re new here.
We’ve curated some resource pages to help get you started, but there’s no way you’re going to get through but a small fraction of what you’d like to read. Sign up to get new content as we publish it, as well as a guided tour through our best content and reminders that’ll keep you finishing the stuff that matters.
Before you go, though, I’d like to leave you with a thought:
Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure about you. – Marianne Williamson
Stand Tall, Creative Giant!
