While it's easy to believe that the main barriers to being more productive, generating and developing ideas, and doing our best work are external (how many times have you vented to a coworker about "hitting a wall?"), the truth is that these frustrating blocks are most often in our own heads. What is the entity responsible for this? The Inner Critic.
The Inner Critic is relentless, driving us toward perfectionism and fanning the flames of self doubt, self-sabotage, and self criticism while dousing the sparks of creative ideas before they have a chance to develop. It encourages rationalization to help us feel better about snuffing out these sparks and keeps us believing that it's saving us from rejection, judgment, and failure. Worst of all, it makes us think all of this is our own idea.
How do we break free of something that feels like it's a natural part of who we are?
Denise Jacobs, Speaker, Author and Chief Creativity Evangelist of The Creative Dose, who speaks at web conferences and consults with tech companies worldwide, maps a way out in her latest work, Banish Your Inner Critic. This book is your manual and toolkit to help you not only reclaim your creativity and productivity, but bump it up to extreme productivity, clearing a path for you to find your zone more often - and stay in it longer.
