Whenever I can drag myself out of bed early enough I love going to the Creative Mornings events in Toronto. While I generally don’t consider myself a very creative person I always manage to leave feeling very inspired and motivated to create, even if the speakers were more tech or design-focused than I am as a content creator and strategist.
This morning I put on this talk by Max Temkin, one of the creators of Cards Against Humanity, from a Creative Mornings event in Chicago. I really loved his talk and thought I would share it with you . He talks about how advice that encourages people to “do what makes them happy” is actually pretty useless since it’s a circular argument.
He explains it better than I can:
Some of my favourite quotes from the video that I’m letting inspire me today:
“Confusion is where knowledge starts”
“Spending your life trying to feel good is really bad advice”
In the end it’s all about having a clear vision and striving to create something lasting and with value. Here’s to a confusing rest of the week to everyone 😉
