I had started practicing, not just playing, practicing my guitar. Even though, I still wasn’t applying myself consistently at that point, I could feel the fire burning hotter than ever.

By mastering the psychology of creativity, the power of creative habit, I’ve created more art in last two and a half years than I did in the twenty years before—and just as importantly, I’m getting that art out to the world.

If you’ve ever experienced resistance, bad days or writers block. If you’ve been inconsistent in your creative production. If you’ve been unwilling or unable to let go of your work – this podcast will help you.”
