Affirmations-366Days#27 & Have You Scheduled Time for Your Genius Project?
Posted January 28, 2016on:
Affirmations-366Days#27-I routinely schedule time for my ‘genius project’; the kind of writing project that takes my breath away.
For new readers, here’s why I’m committing to writing affirmations, about the creative process, during the next 366 days.
During this past holiday break, I spent a lot of time listening to writing coach, Rochelle Melander’s backlog of excellent podcasts. In one of the episodes, she encourages people to make time for their ‘genius projects’. Genius projects are the ones that take our breath away every time we think about them. Genius projects, are the ones we daydream of attempting because they are so inspiring, mind-expanding, challenging, different, boundary-breaking, etc. These are the projects that if we could just make a little time for them, working on them would light us up from the inside. Sadly, these are the projects that often live at the very bottom of our to-do lists, languishing behind deadline driven work, prior commitments, other practical writing projects, and going to the dentist. She recommends that you schedule time in the calendar to focus on your genius project.
Do you have a genius project? Does it have time and space on your calendar?
