Inspiring

My new favourite show! I love listening to the musings of creatives while I’m doing my own creative work. Madeline is a great interviewer and the show is well edited. I love this field of research - the blog is great too.

Holy cow!

I heard Madeleine’s interview on RTRfm last week and have since then devoured
all 5 episodes currently available. I’m considering listening to them again! Each episode is packed full of wisdom and humility.
I’ve listened to other similar podcasts that champion focus, drive and optimisation of time and energy but seem to neglect the equally important rest and recover process that is vital in maintaining balance and long term focus and drive. Ruts

Creativity and productivity comes in all forms

Loved the Clare Bowditch episode. It helped me accept and embrace that the way I think and operate is completely normal and can be part of the creative process. It also helped me understand that I am far more creative than I ever used to admit and that creativity and productivity comes in all forms. I’ve already picked up some useful tips and can’t wait to listen to more episodes to make the most of my creative talents.
