A Create Date is a weekly outing, spent doing something that 1] you’d really like to do; 2] you haven’t done before, or for a very long time; and 3] is pure play for you (not work in disguise).

It may not feel like it but it’s an important creative practice. Conscious creation is about the play of ideas and insights and this creative play replenishes our well of images, ideas and inspiration.

When choosing a Create Date, just ask yourself, “what sounds like fun?” And then allow yourself to do it. (Alert: expect creative resistance. Create dates show us that it can be really hard, sometimes, to be good to ourselves.)

You can keep track of your Create Dates using this log. Downloadable Creative Playsheet: Monthly Create Date Log
