About the Podcast

Creativity Talks is a weekly podcast with artist, author and creative entrepreneur, Susan Yeates. Each week the podcast delves into the world of creativity and Susan’s fundamental belief that everyone is creative.

Each week through discussions, listener questions and artist interviews Susan will tackle a topic to do with finding inspiration, boosting creativity and walking a more creative path in your life. Topics include: how to find your style, fear of the blank page, how to start a regular creative practice, staying motivated to create, sources of inspiration (people, places and books) and how to make a business out of something you love. 

This podcast is for anyone curious about creativity from those people who identify as ‘not creative at all’ to creative business owners and just anyone needing a weekly dose of creative input and inspiration.

Creativity Talks 15: Productivity, goal setting and time management for creatives

by Susan Yeates | 26 August, 2021

In something a little different, today I wanted to address a question I get asked a lot by friends, followers and listeners - "how do you do so much?" That's right, today I want to talk briefly about ways that I personally manage my own time and creative projects. This means that I will share with you the projects that I currently have on the go (i.e. discuss the two separate businesses I run) as well as how and when I set goals, what productivity hacks I use and how valuable time-blocking is for me.
