I’ve known Sam Bennet for many years now. She’s a writer, speaker, actor, and creativity-productivity specialist as well as the author of the best-selling books, Get It Done and Start Right Where You Are. Sam is the creator of the Organized Artist Company where she helps creative individuals get unstuck and move forward with their goals. She is such a joy and she gives the best advice when I need to hear it.

In this episode, Sam and I discuss procrastination and overwhelm. She reminds us that other people can’t make us feel overwhelmed, it’s a feeling we put onto ourselves. And, she shares some ways to reclaim our power. As Sam said, “When you are doing something you like, in the way you like to do it, it’s not so hard to get stuff done.”

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • What if you let this thing (whatever that thing is for you) be as big as it wants to be? (8:22)
  • Overwhelm and procrastination are BIG words and used to describe many things (10:39)
  • Setting worthy goals and how one can achieve them; plus the ‘groan’ zone (14:56)
  • Some action steps to use your imagination for good (20:50)
  • The eye-opening thing Sam does when she sees people doing things in which she disapproves (30:10)
  • A 5-minute art exercise you can do to help you work through your feelings (32:19)
  • The difference between being creative and being artistic (39:33)
