    9. Getting back into it

    9. Getting back into it

    Hey friends, it has been a while since the last episode of my podcast. Perfectionism got a hold of me and got me off track, but I am back after a long break. Sometimes a break is just what we need to reignite the passion we started with. It is an opportunity to reconnect with our "why." Thanks for sticking around as I come back once again to help you cultivate your inner game so you can achieve your full creative potential.

    8. Finding your path to awakening and personal development with Chris Tomasso

    8. Finding your path to awakening and personal development with Chris Tomasso

    In this episode, I have a conversation with Chris Tomasso, a gamification consultant, and podcast host.  We talk about creativity, personal development, self-awareness, and the path to awakening. This was one of those conversations where we could have kept talking because as you will hear we are both passionate about the topic of awakening.  

    A few highlights from our conversation:


    Use data cautiously. Use multiple data points to begin to identify trends in what you create to see how audiences are connecting with your message.
    We talked about the qualities of good and bad gamification and how gamification is now part of the fabric of our reality.
    Learn how self-awareness can bring more freedom and joy into our lives.
    There are no boundaries in our life and work so unblocking ourselves in one area in our lives will help all parts equally.
    Learn why the parts we hide about ourselves are the parts that are essential to who we are.
    If you're stuck then moving your body, whether it is through dance, running, or biking can help release the negative energy stuck within you.

    Enjoy!

    7. Stopping procrastination in its tracks by using the Spark To Action framework with Patricia Leveque

    In this episode, I have a wonderful conversation with Patricia Leveque, a writer, educator, and procrastination coach. I first met Patricia in the Ship 30-for-30 program, a writing program to help you build a consistent writing habit. Her wonderful essays about creativity and joy in ordinary moments helped me be more grateful and appreciate the time I spend with my family. She also helped me understand how to be more focused and procrastinate less with her SPARK To Action framework which she explained in detail. 

    A few highlights from our conversation: 


    Change takes time and an important part of change is accomodating your needs by becoming more self-aware
    We need to be mindful and make the choices that actually move us forward toward our goals
    Reduce your to-do list to help you reduce your mental clutter to gain clarity
    The Spark To Action Framework can help to make sure you are working on the tasks that align with your values and goals
    Focus on growth over perfection

    Episode Transcript

    A few highlights from our conversation:


    If you feel stuck then take action towards what inspires you. Instead of overthinking, take action, learn and adjust along the way.
    Learn how Samanta stood up to her impostor syndrome by taking charge taking action.
    Why it helps to come clean about our negative thoughts with someone we trust and how they can put things in perspective for us and help get those negative thoughts out of our head.
    How Samanta uses affirmations to help her quiet the inner voice and change the dialogue.
    How mentoring can help you practice the skills needed to reach the next level.
    Why changing jobs will not always solve the problems we face within and around us. We have to take charge and action where we are.
    Why setting boundaries is crucial for a designer's mental health and well-being and learn strategies you can use to begin taking your power back at work so you don't become a victim of unrealistic expectations and prevent burnout.
    Why you should take time off before you burn out and have no choice to take it.
