“In order to be great coaches, we have to create great music and be current artists.” ~ Christina Aguilera
One of the greatest challenges of my creative life is to actually take time to … well… CREATE.
I encourage them to prioritize their creating time and protect it fiercely.
I share their joy, grinning from deep down as I receive their regular “I wrote last night, Coach!” email report-outs.
Yet I only wrote — for my own work — once last week.
So I emailed my coach, told her it was time for me to get consistent with my writing again. And sent her my book plan. With due dates (aiiieeeee!).
And this morning I’m writing. Because I said I would.
And because Christina Aguilera said I have to. Ok, not really, but… kinda, yes, actually:
“In order to be great coaches… we need to be current artists.”
Your art (and I’m using the broadest possible definition of that word) … are you DOING it?
