How the Creative Process Works


In this episode of The Long Game, I’m taking you on a creative journey, exploring the process of illumination, evaluation, and verification of unique ideas and experiences to discover the universal concepts of creativity.

We often think the creative process is individual and varies from person to person, but I’ve learned that there are some universal truths about the process of creativity.

This episode breaks down the five stages of the creative process, which include preparation, incubation, illumination, evaluation, and verification. I’ve found how all stages of it are universal, but also unique to everyone.

We can’t discount the importance of the gut, the subconscious mind, and taking breaks. By understanding the creative process, we can better understand our own journey and find joy in being creative.

I’ve always been creative in one form or another. I’m familiar with the emotions in the creative process. I love that I’ve now landed in a place where my business feeds into my creativity. We know that we apply it in lots of the things we’re doing every day. Being creative fills me with joy and hope that you get some insight about your own creative process.

That weird thing that you do, those emotions that you have, that is all part of your own visionary ecosystem, right? And it’s totally unique to you and universal at the same time.

I’d love to hear about your process. Let me know what works for you. You can DM me on social or respond to one of my weekly emails.
