  • Scrolling Less to Create Success

    Indie Roller

    Today I'm sharing my biggest win of 2021 and that's how I've scrolled less and spent more time creating.

    I discuss the two types of scrolling and how one can be useful and the other isn't. The unuseful unintentional scrolling is part of a wider problem where we can find ourselves consuming more than we are creating which can lead to comparison and imposter syndrome. A heady mix that serves none of us.

    Have a notepad and pencil handy to create your own Creative Business Clock which is a tool I share so you can start to make sense of the time you have available and how you would like to spend it.

    So I have spent a lot of time thinking about how we can make sense of our businesses to create an experience for ourselves where we feel in control most of the time and more calm.

    I asked myself: What core areas can we pay attention to? And how do those areas fit together?
