Brilliance Demands Bravery

I was recently asked by Creative Mornings / Cincinnati to do a talk on the importance of bravery in the creative process. I believe that bravery and creative expression are two sides of the same coin, and that if you want to do brilliant work you must commit to a set of everyday acts of courage.

I was recently asked by Creative Mornings / Cincinnati to do a talk on the importance of bravery in the creative process. I believe that bravery and creative expression are two sides of the same coin, and that if you want to do brilliant work you must commit to a set of everyday acts of courage. Below is a video of my recent talk. It was a fun event, and we had over 200 people in attendance. Enjoy!
