Inspiration advice: Genius doesn’t have to be sloppy


One of our recent author-advice posts sought to dispel the myth of planner-versus-pantser.

Nathan Wade, managing editor at the website WealthFit, believes that the most successful creatives are actually organized and disciplined people.

(And given that the site offers advice on money, investing, and entrepreneurship, he’s probably seen a decent-sized sample of thriving people.)

Wade understands it isn’t easy, especially for those who can make their own hours, but offers a few tips for consistently setting up the right environment to cultivate your creativity.

Head to The Creative Penn for his advice and others’ on this topic.
