At Syncreate, we help individuals and groups name their bigger goals and then break those goals into smaller increments--we call them milestones. We also recognize that one of the key factors in hitting those milestones--which leads to accomplishing the overall goal--is accountability partnership. It’s one of the main reasons people hire us to coach and consult--to help hold their feet to the fire so that they reach those milestones. And along the way, they build confidence and momentum, and the possibility of actually finishing that creative project comes into sharp focus.
Of course, many of us hold two misconceptions about the creative process: 1) That’s it’s a solo venture and 2) It’s done in a single--or nearly single--push. Both of these myths hold us back, keeping us stuck in a rut: if we were really talented, we’d be able to write that novel all on our own, without any external encouragement or milestone partnership.
However, if we look back or around at the most creative people, we see that they have both: community and accountability, as well as the commitment to spend lots of time by themselves to do the work needed to be done. And it’s this movement between the collective and individual which opens up the process, allowing us to complete the milestones along the way to the big goal. We need people--especially other creatives--to help us name the small steps along the way, and to make sure we meet them. Accountability partnership is also a standard in other areas of life: fitness, weight loss/diet change, and financial solvency.
Partnership helps us identify our barriers and the strategies to overcome them, as well as take delight in the momentum of others. It’s a way of building a creative community and rejoicing in the efforts of more than just ourselves. At Syncreate, we aim to reveal the creative process, empower your ideas, and help you identify both milestones and partners. It’s a formula we’ve found that works.
