Stop the glorification of busy

Time to eat some humble pie, and introduce you to our growing team  When we started this little blog, we had some pretty ambitious goals. We were going to update it every week.   We were going to share all of our learnings along the way.  We were going to be a source of inspiration.  Sorry if you’ve been eagerly awaiting tips or tricks from us; if you have, they’ve been sorely lacking. (We write this as we read over our most recent post… from January this year!)  Luckily it’s a big wide web, and there are plenty of others out there who are geared up to share news, views and ideas, so we’re confident we won’t be your only source of encouragement. But, with that said, we do still want to let you in on our journey. We’re big on sharing, and we’ve learnt a lot from others, so we’d like to put our own life lessons out there, in the hopes that they’re even just a little bit useful to someone else.  So, here goes, we’re setting some new goals. And this place will be a whole lot more active from here on out. We’re not going to shoot for the lofty ‘weekly update’ dream just yet, but we have plans to make sure that there is a little more from us here, from here on out.  So… Why so silent?    We’re doing our very best to write this post without including the sentence ‘we’ve been so busy’. We like to be productive, and active, and have a tonne of interesting things to do - but we really don’t want to glorify busy-ness.  So… we’ve been active. And really productive. The first six months has been full of adventures, and we’re really proud of the work that we’ve been doing. So with all the exciting things we’ve been doing, we’ve had to learn to let go - all over again, and in a different kind of way this time.  We’ve had to learn that we can’t do every little thing ourselves, on every project that we work on. We’ve had to learn to share our vision, and trust others in delivering the work that we believe in.  So, we’ve grown our little Curative crew, into our very own modern family of talented creative thinkers and doers, who share the same values that we do. They all want to put their skills to use for something bigger than themselves, and they all bring their own unique talents and experience to our team to make the projects we deliver even richer.  So now, as part of learning to let go… again… and, acknowledging that we can’t do everything ourselves, we’re also going to share this little blog space with the whole Curative crew, and have them share all the things they’re learning along the way too.  So, look out for updates from the lovely Sam & Aria who will be curating our creativity next month.  Jade & Eddy xx
