I recently joined my friend Dr. Greg Wells at his podcast, Sharpen Your Edge. It usually airs at LinkedIn on Thursdays at noon et, you can catch this one at YouTube:
One of the themes we talk about is how creativity is innate and every person is creative; indeed, many of us draw in school, we just stop somewhere along the way. I mentioned adult coloring books, and Greg elaborated on that (“It’s super awesome for decompressing”).
We also talked a lot about the origin story of my book Creative Doing (I go into that really in-depth for Human Parts!), how my passion for reading and blogging—and my parents’ support of both!—really helped me tap into my creative operation and passion.
I really appreciate Greg’s work, he’s been constantly writing as well. Check out his upcoming Powerhouse, and his latest, Rest, Focus, Recharge.
