Episode 94: How Structure and Flow Impact Creativity and Productivity


When we talk about Structure, what do we mean?

When we talk about Flow, what do we mean?

How do things like structure and flow relate to creativity? To productivity?

Our last episode was a short one just to welcome everyone to Structure and Flow – now we want to talk about why we called it that, and what those words mean to us.

We believe that for creative entrepreneurs to be more productive they need to spend more time within the box of business structure and business systems, and more time in creative flow (whether that’s in creative play or creative work).

The enemy of art is the absence of limitations. – Orson Welles

Structure means business systems, tools, things that are repeatable, things that have time constraints (ever hear of SMART goals?).

Flow stands for the flow state of creativity where, as Rilke puts it, what you do flows from you like a river the way it is with children.
