“You’ll never be more passionate about an idea than the moment immediately after you’ve had it.”
As artists, our quest to discover, harness, and share our creativity is ongoing.
Our ability to learn new ideas and learn new ways of thinking is central to our development, and defines the quality of our output at every stage in our journey.
That’s why this week I’m doing something a little different, inviting a special guest to the show who is an expert in ideas – how to have more of them, how to have better ones, and how they can change our lives…
Daniel Brookes is the host of the Unlocking Creativity podcast, a show which invites creative trailblazers from the worlds of music, art, entertainment, tech, design and more to understand their creative processes, and learn how they come up with their best ideas.
With guests ranging from the likes of Derren Brown to the legend Paul Oakenfold, it’s safe to say Daniel knows a thing or two about what makes top creatives tick, and I’ve got him on the show to share his key learnings from them.
From honing in when inspiration strikes, to overcoming creative blocks and finding your unique voice as an artist, this episode is packed full of compelling ideas and brilliant advice that I know you’ll take so much from.
So get the notepad out, tune in, and get ready to unlock your creativity.
- A positive mindset maximises creativity.
- Utilize momentum by investing as much energy into your ideas as soon as possible.
- Set parameters – creating something from nothing is a lot more difficult than creating something from something.
- One good idea has the power to change entire lives, and you’re capable of it
- “You’ll never be more passionate about an idea than the moment immediately after you’ve had it.”
- “Focus on your talent and your energy, the rest is irrelevant.”
