An exercise for defining creative success

Here is an exercise for defining creative success, some questions that will help you write your own succinct quote like those we posted on Friday, explaining your definition of success.

For best results, f-r-e-e-write your answers to these questions. (You can find out more about f-r-e-e-writing here).

▪ Does your definition of success involve loving what you do and how you do it?

▪ Does your definition of success involve inspiring or enabling others?

▪ Does your definition of success mean maximizing your potential, self-actualization?

▪ Does your definition of success have a spiritual dimension? Explain.

▪ Does your definition of success involve money? How much

▪ Does your definition of success involve freedom and time? What sort of freedom? How much time? Time to do what?

▪ Does your definition of success mean having a summer home or a fancy car or world travel or… [insert favorite material desirable here]? Name the object or experience and what it means to you.

▪ Where do you think your definition of creative success comes from?

Once you have your answers to these questions, summarize your findings with one quote like those from the conscious creators in the previous post.
