What are you going to do from now on? On making a plan…

Given the recent global events you might be wondering ‘What now?’
Yes, times are uncertain. We can never fully guarantee nor predict an outcome – no matter how certain.
But I love this quote that I found by Maria Robinson.
Maria Robinson quote featured in Inner Creative blog 'What are you going to do from now on?"
Sometimes we’re not happy with where we find ourselves in our life or business.

What’s coming up for Inner Creative – Planning tools and inspiration

2016 is just racing by here!

Are you tired of not getting the results you’re after?

Do you feel like you’re treading water in your business rather than creating a real difference out there?

Do you want more for your business in 2016/17?

I believe that you can run your business with a focus and drive towards success in a way that also reflects your personal style, passion and values.

This belief underpins why I created the Castle in the Sky Visual Plan.  But primarily I did it to fix one of my own problems. Let me tell you the story of how it came about, the results it created for me, and more importantly how you can also create one for your business this coming financial year.

The Creative Life of Thanuja Gunatillake – Santé Photography

Welcome to this first instalment of The Creative Life interview series! 

I believe that we’re all creative and that we can bring it into many facets of our life.
Each month I will interview people to find out how they express and nurture their creativity, as well as how they make room for it with everything else that’s going on in their lives. I’m also interested in learning about how they approach the business side of things if they have one.

So please, allow me to introduce you to…

The Creative Life of Thanuja Gunatillake.

Thanuja Gunatillake is the founder and owner of Santé Photography. Thanuja set up Santé to capture those special moments and people in life that are worth celebrating. While Santé Photography is her labour of love, Thanuja is also a devoted Mum and works full-time in transport advocacy.

Getting something extraordinary OR “How to avoid only finding the obvious solution by using conventional problem solving techniques”

Has there been a time when you know you want something different, but you don’t know exactly what it is?

Or you want to solve a problem, but you know you won’t get a different result if you use the same approach you’ve always taken?

Basically, instead of boring and ordinary – you want different.
You want something extraordinary.

These are the same expectations that I bring to my own work.
For instance, as an entrepreneur, I grapple with how I define success for myself (there’s no performance review checklist that’s already been created for me by ‘the powers that be’).​

So using a conventional, logical way of creating my definition of success, I’d sit down with my beverage of choice and list all the ways that I measure success and answer “How do I know that I’m successful?” But instead I decided to do this… ​ Continue reading
