In 2015 I shared this video in a post ‘Creativity & Motivation’. If you haven’t seen it, or want a refresher, please go watch it now, I’ll wait.

Every now and then I look back through my 950+ posts (!) here, I re-share some them on Twitter or LinkedIn. Just because I wrote it a while ago doesn’t mean it’s not still relevant or interesting. But this post struck a chord, again, as the creative streak within waxes and wanes. Being a creative thinker or someone who’s in a creative role (or any role for that matter that requires you to ‘produce’ similar outcomes whilst still bringing in something new or different) being motivated is difficult. It’s hard.

For me, I am more creative when I’m more motivated – motivated to be better, to be different, to do it well, etc. If I’m not motivated, I’m less likely to put the extra effort or attention. So how do I stay motivated?
