An introduction to Sustainably Creative
Hello, I’m Michael Nobbs, welcome to Sustainably Creative. If you’re new to the site, this is the place to start.
Pop the kettle on
If you haven’t already, pop the kettle on, make yourself a nice cup of tea and watch the video above. In it I tell you a little bit about why I set up Sustainably Creative and how it can help you to build a creative life especially, if like me, you’re short on energy.
Once you’ve watched the video why not start to explore the site a little. There’s no rush, bookmark this page and come back and listen to a podcast or read one of the posts in the recommended reading section below.
If you also sign up for The Important Work Letter, I’ll send you new essays to help you stay on track with your creative work (your “Important Work” as I tend to call it around here).
Take your time
I hope that before long you’ll start to find your way around the site and will begin to feel right at home. If you do, consider becoming a member and delve a little deeper.
It’s free to become a Sustainably Creative Explorer and if you do you’ll have access to more resources that will further help you to build your own sustainably creative life.
Remember, take your time and enjoy the process of getting to know your way round the site.
Let’s get going. Scroll down or click on one of the links below to start exploring.
What I offer
Jump right in
A daily podcast
Every weekday I record the One Thing Today podcast in which I invite you to join me for a cuppa and encourage you to take one small step to move your creative life on just a little.
The Important Work Letter
Sent out roughly every two weeks, The Important Work Letter provides inspiration, reassurance and encouragement to help you get your Important Work done.
Gentle encouragement via books, courses and more
I’m a great believer in the carrot rather the stick approach to getting things done and offer a growing number of courses and books that I hope encourage people to gently make progress with their creative work.
Below are some handpicked posts to start to give you a feel for the sort of things I write about here on Sustainably Creative. Grab a cuppa (and maybe a slice of cake) and dive in.
