Summary

Most of the conventional productivity advice you'll find in the soft business section simply does not work for creative people. Surprisingly, to date there has not been a single book or audiobook that addresses the unique organisational challenges that artists face. This audiobook sets out to change that, and it addresses the myth that truly creative people are messy and that they need mess in order to create.

Sheila Chandra applies her professional insights as a creative and an organizing expert to the lives of other busy creative people in all disciplines - showing them how good organization can liberate their creative magic. She begins with artists' physical spaces, including arranging their workspaces and offices so that they remain tidy effortlessly.

Her career headspace chapters cover creative well-being, including artist support systems; career well-being, including networking and collaborations; self-promotion and how to avoid working for free; making social media pay; personal branding, career planning and goals; how to manage copyright issues and legal paperwork; and legacy management. And all from an artist's point of view.

These foolproof, tried-and-tested systems are mixed with creativity tips and artist well-being advice that only one artist knows to give another. Writing with real affection for the listener, Sheila Chandra takes the creative person by the hand and puts them on the path to success.

This book should have a different title

This book is about organizing for people who have creative careers. It’s not for all creative people and the tips for career success don’t really apply outside of creative careers. I’m a professional organizer and found many of the actual organizing tips to be only so so. The specifics about creative careers however is great and for people trying to make a living with their art in whatever form, this book is a worthwhile read.

Boring

This book didn't hold my interest. As a creative person, I was looking for creative solutions to organize chaos. This book did not deliver.
