How we kick-start the day with Creative Circles.

A morning should be your time; it should be a time to embrace the day to come, in a way that best suits you.

I should probably start this by saying I’m not an early bird. (I’m not really a night owl either) but you just can’t beat starting the day right. Every entrepreneur, creative, maker, techie or otherwise has the same amount of hours in the day and how we use these hours is of the up most importance.

A morning should be your time, free from the distractions of phone calls and emails (it can wait, I promise!) it should be a time to embrace the day to come, in a way that best suits you. Be ready to effectively tackle whatever may head your way. We all know the drastic effects of getting out of the wrong side of the bed right? The following quote is from Get Organized With These 6 Tips That Lead to More Productive DaysWorking nonstop leads to stress and fatigue -- this can ruin your focus and completely kill your productivity. You have to step away to recharge and essentially take time off in order to get more done.

Creative Circles is a time to disrupt the usual morning routine of wake-commute-work and replace it with a good cuppa and an opportunity to chat to other creative folk, share ideas, discuss projects, make new contacts (and friends). Generally it is about kick starting your day the right way. I’ve made contact with a whole range of people from different backgrounds: a hat designer, furniture designer, digital marketeer, painter, stylist, photographer, and that’s just to name a few! Embrace these opportunities to share what you do with other people; our city is abolsutely FULL to the brim of interesting people.

Start your day with a circle of folk who are genuinely interested in what you do, what you make, what keeps you ticking. I always leave Creative Circles with a clear mind, a positive attitude and an inspired idea of what I will achieve with my day. Taking place the first Tuesday of every month, 8.30 – 10.30am, join us at either CodeBase or Gayfield Creative Spaces, whatever location suits you. See you there for a cuppa, aye?
