Taking Creative Inventory: Finding Focus While Working at Home

Over the past several weeks I've gotten to speak with dozens of creative friends, partners, and clients all cooped up in their homes and eager to make the most of their time. Across the board, they are all reporting the same problem: it's hard to focus.

Doubleplus Ungood. We’re facing an infodemic of misinformation at a previously unprecedented scale. Conflicting messages from our leadership, from the media, and from within ourselves—how can we make sense of insanity? Piecing this all together are WBAI-FM's Mike Sargent, comedian Leighann Lord, and Starlight Runner CEO Jeff Gomez.

Episode 027: Fighting for our future - the Collective Journey in full effect. A talk with Jeff Gomez

"The leaders of this world, the elite, they are going to want to return as quickly as possible to the chaotic unmooring of our understanding of the facts. They are going to want to scramble our sense-making capabilities as soon as possible, because it works to their advantage. We have to be our own heroes. No one is coming to save us, we have to do it ourselves."

Have a listen to the new episode of the Evolving Media podcast, where Simon Staffans talks to me about the surreal and challenging times we're all living right now. How can this Collective Journey help us shape better stories for our lives in times to come?

If you’re reading this, then we’ve already touched one another’s lives in a positive way.

I would like to do what I can to lend support to friends who might be experiencing stress and uncertainty, or who want to use this time to focus on improving the vision, messages, and goals of your personal story.

As of right now, I am steeply discounting the Starlight Runner Life Story Coaching & Counseling service, so that most anyone (including teens and young adults) can afford to talk to me or my team. Email me or send me a direct message through Facebook, and I will get back to you right away.

Stay home if you can. Love those you’re with. Create good things. We’re not alone.

The Hero’s Journey is No Longer Serving Us

The second part of Jeff Gomez's series on Collective Journey storytelling, newly revised:

Everything is changing super fast. We're cutting cable cords, shopping malls are closing down, our social issues have become battlegrounds that have taken down top executives.

More dangerously, a wave of authoritarian populism driven by anger and hate is washing across the world — accelerated through social media and a lack of media literacy.

If we're to make sense of this all, we need to understand how story has transformed in the age of pervasive media. We need to realize that the simplified Hollywood vision of the Hero's Journey is no longer serving us.

Why is This Happening?

Reactivating the Collective Journey blog!

After an intense period of research and testing, we're ready to finish our account of this new model of storytelling for the post-digital age.

What we've found about how narrative is now being used is sobering, frightening, exciting, and wonderful. To start off, we will be reposting newly edited versions of the original series.

Next week we will start posting new chapters, culminating in a full description of the 18-step Collective Journey story model, along with specific case studies. Enjoy, and Never Surrender!

Episode 009: Revisiting the Narrative Reversal - a talk with Jeff Gomez

From "The Evolving Media Podcast" with Simon Staffans:

At the same time, as Jeff says, when we genuinely listen to our audience, when they feel we actually hear them – that’s when we start forging the kind of bonds that will last for a lifetime.

And with those bonds in place, that two-way loyalty up and running – that’s the safe-yet-challenging environment that is the most fruitful for creating amazing stories and experiences.

When we know we can release what we’ve created and have honest feedback without hostility, without vilifying or ridiculing – feedback that is aimed at making everything the best it can be… that’s when we know we can truly create what we need to create.
