In this episode we discuss:

  • The difference between being creative and being a creator.
  • How to recognize burnout.
  • Why we shouldn’t normalize exhaustion and burnout.
  • How to truly create in every moment.
  • The 5-step framework for optimal creation.
  • The creation loop vs. the burnout loop.
  • Interrupting the unconscious patterns of burnout. 
“We often can’t see what’s happening in the moment. But when you look back, you say, ‘Ah, I see a pattern, I see how something’s happened’.”
