Quickie Quiz: Are You Avoiding Your Dream?

House of Cards

House of Cards is a great show, but is television robbing you from your dream?

Last week we talked about avoiding working on your creative project, while telling yourself that it would happen one day.

Here’s a quick quiz to help you see your own deception:
Try to be as honest as possible. (This will be especially tricky if you have been lying to yourself)

Have you ever told yourself that watching the next season of House of Cards in it’s entirety is really ok because it’s a really good show and hell, it might help your writing/art?


Have you been working on the same project for so long that you secretly hope no one will ask you about it anymore?


Are you contemplating giving up your art, your passion and just being a worker bee like everyone else?


Do you feel intense jealousy when you see another friend or former colleague invite you to a book signing or art opening?


If you have answered yes to any one of these questions you are probably in a creative or writing rut. If you answered yes to two or more, you are possibly blocked and should get help immediately. Shoot me an email and let’s set up your complimentary consultation: Karmen@clearcreativecoaching.com

In either case—you should take action right away. What about your creative practice have you gotten passive about? What do you actively need to do to seek change and rise above your own personal status quo?

What is one goal you can set for the week that is totally achievable?
What can you commit to do that might be less passive and perhaps a bit out of your comfort zone to achieve that goal?

Drop me a line at Karmen@clearcreativecoaching.com and let me know how it’s going.

    Hi Karmen! I would like to join your group, but cannot meet at the times listed on the meetup.com group page. Is there another time when you meet with members? By the way, I checked “yes” to each question listed in the quiz!
