8 Anchoring your Creative State!

Anchoring is a technique used all over the world to get peak performers into the right "headspace".

Use this simple technique to quickly "jump into the Zone" for your Creative Journey.


  1. Relive a moment when you were at your creative peak
  2. Spend as much time as you can in that moment and visualize every aspect of that moment (sights, sounds, temperature, smells...)
  3. Use a unique physical gesture to Anchor that moment
  4. Later on use that unique physical gesture to trigger your peak creative state
  5. Keep re-visualizing creative wins in your mind and associate them to the gesture
Here is the four minute version with my own example of how I jump into my improv "happy place":

Try out anchoring for yourself and let me know how it goes in the comments.

*Note: anchoring can be used for any state you want to get into, so you can play around with it and see how it can help you!
