“If you’re not failing every now and again, it’s a sign you’re not doing anything very innovative”.-Woody Allen
I have been thinking lately about what I’ve experienced in the past 3 years while working from home in my pajamas. There was a blend of success, failure, silence, encouragement, busyness, boredom, creativity…
I want to share with you some notions that pulled me though it all. These are not secret, special, or sacred, they are solely my own thoughts:
-when I learned to stop responding to my circustances I grew into my most creative state
-I sought out art, writing, music, film that changed my perspectives
-long conversations with my wife about everything in detail
-I tried to learn from the successes and failures and continue to use this wisdom to help others
-the extreme pressure from this time period has influenced me to forget about the box that I thought I had to think outside of…when there is no box, you have only your ideas.
-Seth Godin taught me that I was a creative who had been trapped in the factory-mentality.
-God loves me and uniquely created me
