If you are where you should be, chances are you're feeling the pressure; the weight of the work that you were made to do.
How are you managing and conceptualizing that pressure and weight?
Most of the times, we feel like we want to give up when the pressure comes; pack it in; buckle under the burden, but we can't, and we won't, because when we are where we should be, we shouldn't run away. Instead, we need to lean in, plant our feet, and have a deep thought session regarding how we might innovate ourselves out of this season of weight we find ourselves in.
I call it the pressure cooker innovator. They're the type of person who doesn't view pressure, limits, and deadlines as problems, but reasons to create innovate solutions. Yes, it's a difficult kind of innovation and perspective to embrace, but it's the best kind—because any real creative work tends to be the kind that puts you in a pressure cooker.
But hey, after all that pressure cooking, something delicious is produced, isn't it? It is.
Because it's often the difficult situations, the pressure cooker ones and not the easy ones, that cause creativity to crystallize.
