“Chaos in the world brings uneasiness, but it also allows the opportunity for creativity and growth.” -Tom Barrett
As I’ve continued exploring this new path as The Chaos Whisperer, I’ve discovered something vital about both who I am and what it means to be The Chaos Whisperer.
I have always preferred working in fields related to the arts and creativity, but I’m not actually an artist myself. I’ve tried my hand at various creative pursuits within widely varying degrees of success. But the one thing that’s always been stable is my ability to navigate the logistical side of creative business.
You see, I am not a creator. I am an implementer. I’ve never been a big ideas person, I don’t frequently have that lightbulb moment, and my days aren’t filled with a regular influx of new concepts. But when an idea does reach me, and it’s fresh and original, I do know how to get it in motion. I am an implementer, a progress-maker, an organizer and achiever. I can take a big wild idea and break it down into its executable form.
That’s really why The Chaos Whisperer was born. Because with creativity comes its own kind of Chaos. You can’t have one without the other. And all those ridiculously creative people I so admire do often struggle with the more logistical elements of their work – the finances, the time management, the business development.
You don’t have to drastically change the way you do things. That’s not what I want. I want to help you find applicable solutions to the most common Chaos that comes with your creative pursuits, and help you integrate time-management techniques into your existing routine.
I’m not just going to give you motivational advice on being more productive. There are plenty of other sites that do that. The Chaos Whisperer is less about having more willpower, and more about having the right systems for your kind of creative work – navigating the clutter and mess you accumulate when you’re busy creating, and finding simple solutions that help you focus on the things that need your creative attention.
So if you feel like your creativity could use a little Chaos Whispering, then subscribe to this site and check back for more weekly words of wisdom.
I will also be giving this website a new facelift soon, to help you better navigate the chaos of content within the site. So stay tuned for that too!
