Well, hi I'm Dr. Ally and I love working with creatives. Creatives have more active brains with yield some amazing products and some serious anxieties. You think faster, due to more white matter in your brain (white matter is the stuff that connects brain cells together, the more the merrier), you expect perfection, you are wickedly aware of what happens in the world around you, and sometimes you need help making sense of everything. That's where I come in. As a Creative Consultant for creatives I wear a lot of hats but mainly I listen, assess, and produce results.
Let's start off our journey in creative problem solving with the first thing we all do, start our day. I spent all that time getting that Ph.D. so I'm using it to better the world one business, creative, and script at a time. Any successful person will tell you that the key to success is getting sh*#! done. I say, wake up early, move fast, and be purposeful.
1. Wake up Early
Obviously early is relative but those successful people among us tend to get up between 4-5am. Ok, I know most of us don't get up with the sun. But if you want to wake up earlier try a little something called sleep hygiene. Set your alarm 30 minutes earlier every week. For example I wake up at 6:30, so for one week I'd wake up at 6am, then then next week 5:30 and so on. Keep in mind that for this to work you have to do it every day, even Sunday and Saturday. In a few weeks you should be there with minimal increase in caffeine intake.
