How To Recover From A Creative Hangover With Dr. Ben Michaelis

Ever feel stuck after publishing a big project?

You hit publish on that big project. You’re proud of the work you’ve done and are excited to share it with the world.

Then the unthinkable happens, your audience actually loves the work. They consume it and share with friends. This is the greatest work you’ve published to this point in your career.

The bar has just been raised.

Expectations on your work product are higher.

All eyes are on your next thing.

Or so we tell ourselves.

Except when you return to the keyboard to create your next big thing, your fingers simply won’t work.

This is the creative hangover.

Listen to Dr Ben Michaelis help us get unstuck and get back to the content creation after a creative hangout.
