Why Creativity is not an excuse to be disorganised

Creativity is not an excuse to be disorganised 

I often hear people in the creative space talking about how messy and disorganized they are. 

I am guilty of this.... and to some degree, I used to wear it as a badge of creative honour.

I would stubbornly refuse to do certain tasks, especially anything around tracking and spreadsheets, citing "I'm a creative"

 But it's no excuse...

The more chaotic your life is, does not make you more creative, in fact, the opposite happens.  Chaos will likely mean that you might forget to invoice a client or worse forget to pay you tax...  neither are ideal.

What I've discovered is that the more disciplined you are, the less stress you experience and the more space you create for creative thinking.

I used to think that I had this excuse for being creative that's why everything was always a mess.

But an actual fact the more organised you are the more clear you are about where you're going and what you're doing, the more space you create in your brain to actually be creative.

So don't use creativity as an excuse to not be organized.

Structure and discipline will set you free.  For help with structuring your business join the  www.sixfigurefilmmakers.com
