Mourning and Mission

How do you get back on track after a project or decision doesn't go according to plan?


Here are two thoughts compiled from the experiences and rhythms of a whole bunch of creatives throughout history:

  1. Have a long-range plan of action. Assume failure, broken plans, miscommunication and hurt will be along for the ride and have a plan for working through both the good and the bad. (Hint: this is where creative habits really come into play)

  2. Leave space for mourning and motivating. Some of us spend too much time mourning a loss. In reality this becomes whining, complaining and bitterness. Some of us don't pause to absorb the blow or patch the wound and so we never actually grow. Leaving a little space to mourn the loss, discern what can be learned, pray, express thankfulness for the opportunity and dive back into our long-range creative habits, well, this will foster a healthy journey for the long haul.

Q. So, what's your long-range plan? Do you have steadfast creative habits that carry you forward regardless of mood and moment?
