Bennet Schwartz Shares 4 Ways to Manage Your Creative Career

A creative career is a powerful thing. It takes years of hard work to develop the skills necessary to succeed, but you can have it all with patience and perseverance. Bennet Schwartz discusses four ways to manage your creative career so that you are always on track for success!

1. Keep your creative career in the foreground

Always be mindful of the creative career that you are developing, and never let it fade into the background or become an afterthought in your life! You need to practice to improve upon your skills, which means carving out time for this activity every day. If you live according to a regular schedule where certain things are always done simultaneously, try adding your creative career activity to that schedule. You’ll be surprised by how easy it is!

2. Know when to take a break from working on creative projects

Don’t be afraid to take breaks in between creative projects if you need time for rest and rejuvenation. It’s important that you give yourself a chance to refresh your mind, but don’t leave it too long, or else the break may become an extended vacation from work! If this happens, try setting up a routine where you spend one day per week working on creative projects.

That’s when hanging out with friends or family might not be the best idea! Instead, try finding ways to practice your hobby, like doing some sketching while you’re waiting at a restaurant for a friend. This way, even if you are busy having fun with other people during this time.

3. Take care of yourself – don’t overwork or neglect your health!

It’s easy to get caught up in your creative career and spend all of your time working on it, but this won’t be very healthy for you. Neglecting yourself can lead to stress, which may negatively impact the quality of your work and how well you can manage a full life outside of your creative career.

Make sure to get enough sleep and eat a balanced diet so that you have the energy necessary for all of the work that needs to be done! When it comes to taking care of yourself, don’t forget about relaxing too – this means spending time with friends and family outside of working hours.

4. Find an outlet for stress, like exercise or meditation 

Sometimes, even if you are taking care of yourself and making sure to have some downtime every week, you may still find that the stress from your creative career is too much for you. If this happens, try finding an outlet where you can release all of your pent-up frustration.

Exercise is a great way to do this! Just five to ten minutes of physical activity every day can significantly positively impact your stress levels. Meditation is another option that may work well for you – just try spending some time sitting quietly, practicing deep breathing, and focusing on the present moment!

Finally, find creative outlets where you can express what’s going on in your mind by writing or making art. This is a great way to clear your mind and practice self-expression at the same time!

We’ve covered a lot in this post, but the key takeaway is that it doesn’t matter what you do or how long you’ve been doing it. You can make your creative career work for you if you stay focused on these four things and keep trying new strategies until one stick. Remember, there are no rules to creativity–you create them! It’s not easy, but anything becomes possible when we put our minds (and hearts) into making something happen.
