I don’t like doing things the same way for too long. I like to be creative, to feel different, do things differently and what nots. So, I didn’t really know or give much thought to the idea of having a personal processes until recently.
To me, process was just another word for – boring.
But the more I have thought about it, become more aware of it, and observed people who flourish, the more I have found process to be the most important idea, exercise, and practical tool any creative person, entrepreneurial mind, destined individual, or visionary…can have.”
In my first post on this blog, I wrote in The Need to Bring Your Dreams to Life,
“Genius (every great work of art) is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration,” said Thomas Edison, the famous inventor credited with over 1000 patents. Steve Harvey, a successful comedian and TV host explained it this way, “Success is like struggling to get to a hundred push-ups and holding the position at a hundred for the rest of your life”
Process is the surest and fastest way to turn moments of inspiration into a lifetime experiences. Its the surest way to turn spurts of spiritual genius into physical manifestations called – products, services, and works of art which can be experienced.
In a Nutshell
The Business Dictionary defines process as –
A sequence of interdependent and linked procedures which, at every stage, consume one or more resources (employee time, energy, machines, money) to convert inputs (data, material, parts, etc.) into outputs. These outputs then serve as inputs for the next stage until a known goal or end result is reached.
The Cambridge Dictionary definition of process is –
A series of actions or events performed to make something or achieve a particular result, or a series of changes that happen naturally:
In a nutshell,
A process is systematic method of doing, making, creating, inventing, innovating, writing, producing…something useful.
For instance, – A new process has been developed for removing oil from chips.
Process is the how to, the thought pattern, the sequence of thought questioning, the step by step approach to assembling physical elements to reflect the – idea, dream, vision – which is the spiritual reality
We are talking;
- What to do to create/craft
- When – what time works best for you to do focus and enjoy it?
- What is the best environment you enjoy working in it? Can you creat set environment?
- People – with whom or around who do you like develop your masterpiece or craft?
…just to name a few
Process is one of the most effective and efficient tools for personal leadership, task completion, innovation, and ongoing quality production of what it is we produce, be it – articles, books, produce, clothing, products or services.
Thinking, crafting, designing, and working with and through a personal or group process is the surest way to develop your dream, vision, product, or service with class.
It is the surest means of ticking off the basics as you walk the path of fulfilling destiny and enjoying life while at it.
You can just wing it and go with the flow or develop a process for:
Decision-Making, Creating Solutions, Problem Solving, Acting, Writing, Music, Film production, Negotiation, Marketing, Creating New Ideas, etc. The list is endless.
You may already have a process.
You also may already be using one and not even know it or know what it is. But, there is power in being aware of and continuously using a process of your choice.
There is not just a longterm value: there is a lifetime value in using a creative process in your in your craft
Start thinking of your process.
Feel it! Write down it down. Evaluate it!
Become more aware of it! Tweek it! if necessary.
…Use it! always
Eventually, you evolve exponential by the rule of the learning curve as with a process. You build consistency muscles consistency and quality becomes a natural aspect of your craft.
Life is not full of surprises: WE ARE!
