Episode #1: Introductions and the danger of rationalized procrastination

Introductions are in order for the inaugural episode of the Contemplative Creative podcast – both of the host, David Quiring, and the vision of the podcast itself.  Then, we take a quick dive into the topic of rationalized procrastination and how to get out of your own way in the creative process.

Hello world.

Hello world.  This is David typing this.  After months of dreaming, design, and figuring out the logistics of it all, I am happy to remove the “under construction” blockade and push this website into the world.

Tuesday, May 10th is going to be the inaugural Contemplative Creative podcast release day.  Mic check will commence shortly – I intend to introduce myself, the vision behind this project, and begin by shining a light on one of the roadblocks I ran into in making this project a reality.

Expect podcast episodes to be released biweekly on Tuesdays at 7am CST.  Other articles, videos, and resources in general will be published here on the website more intermittently.  Amidst everything else that we can consume on a daily basis I know that checking back for daily updates can be a chore that falls through the cracks, so I’ve created a newsletter that will be sent out occasionally (less than quarterly) to help the community stay informed on news and resources!
