Much like Hansel and Gretel, we often need to leave ourselves a way to get back home or to our creative place. If we use bread like Hansel and Gretel, we can easily get lost finding our way home. In this week’s podcast, I talk about how important it is to find your passion in your work and how to set some breadcrumbs to help you when you get lost.

One of the hardest parts of working today is trying to find a way to keep what you are passionate about first and front in your work. Too many times, we might find ourselves trying to do work that what we are supposed to be making rather than what feeds our souls when we create. By making a list and spending time on figuring out what makes us feel the passion in our work and things that don’t, we can focus on the more essential parts of our work. This focus will help you keep going in your own creative life when you feel like things might be spinning out of control.

Getting focus and clarity on what matters most to you will help you do work that matters. Not work that is currently trending or fad dependent but rather work you can look back on and love years down the road.
