Some days you feel your best: creative, high-energy, and ready to pour passion into your service mission. But other days, it feels like you just can't get into it. While your energy might ebb and flow, you know your meaningful work depends on your performance.
So, what do you do when you're in a slump? In this quick tactical episode, Jacob Moore delivers practical tools for overcoming slowdowns and getting right back where you need to be. What you’ll learn from this episode:
Maximize your flow states by capturing ideas
Extract critical information to preserve for later
Create systems that work for you when you can't
These 3 steps can be a game-changer when you're in a creative downturn. Remember not to be too hard on yourself, and rest in the hard work you've done already.
"To have a period of time where you have less inspiration, less passion, less ideas, less energy is perfectly normal. A lot of times it syncs up with seasons or with hormones, or with life events. And that's okay. Take care of yourself and do what you can. Feel confident knowing that you've done the work already." - Jacob Moore
