1. On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate your current portfolio of work as the work you have always dreamed of doing?

2. What type of work are you currently doing that exhausts, frustrates or causes problems for you? What would you be willing to let go of or how can you modify it to bring you joy? What are the pain points?

3. If you had an endless budget and incredible skills what work would you do? How would it make you feel to wake up every day and do this? Get into to detail, imagine the places you would work, the clients you would work with, the work you would create. Write a short free-flowing text on what you are seeing.

4. What comes easily to you and what would you consider your natural gifts? Such as working with children, getting people to relax, working with light etc.

5. Are you regularly complimented on something that you take for granted but others seem to find attractive or powerful? It could be personally or about your photography.

6. Who Inspires you? Who’s work makes your heart sing. What is it that moves you about their work?

7. In your career or life what has been the work that you have loved and enjoyed the most, paid or unpaid? That made you smile with pride and earned the respect you want? Who were you working with? Write a short text on your learnings.

8. Take the work you are most passionate about that you have created and make sure you can see it. Write a short text on why? What made you proud of this?

9. After doing the above exercises pinpoint what you need to do to get out of your creative rut. What could you tweak to re-envision what you do and move forward with clarity, joy and love?

I hope this little bit of advice has helped and kick starts your creativity and reminds you that your work is unique, beautiful and only you can do it. Do you, it’s always easier than trying to do something outside yourself!!!
