    Creative Acts for Curious People with Sarah Stein Greenberg

    Creative Acts for Curious People with Sarah Stein Greenberg

    Self-evidently, design and creativity are everywhere -- literally in every man-made thing we make, use, or celebrate.  According to today’s guest, the act of design and creativity can benefit everyone, whether they see themselves as creative or not.
    Sarah Stein Greenberg is Executive Director of the d.school at Stanford (aka the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design), which explores what great design can bring to global industries.  She’s the author of the book Creative Acts for Curious People: How to Think, Create and Lead in Unconventional Ways.
    Sarah cites the freedom of Lego construction, and her father’s carpentry, as twin inspirations for her own creativity.  We talked about design as a language and creativity extending beyond the narrow realms of “art”.
    Among the highlights:
    How navigating uncertainty requires an open attitude to creativity. The importance of “meta-learning.” The value of recognizing one’s own bias. Strategies for exploring serendipitous discovery. The difference between divergent and convergent ideation. How to solicit and use constructive criticism. Struggle as a sign that productive learning is occurring. How to overcome creative blockages. Enjoy!

    How Hard Should You Work?

    How Hard Should You Work?

    “Working too hard is one of the top regrets of the dying.” 
    Yet, when faced with the fear of not having lived the life we truly desire, we seek answers: how hard should we really work? The answer depends on what you want to make out of your life -- your purpose, your calling. It also depends on your definition of 'balance'. How much time do you want to spend working? Would you happily allow your craft to consume most of your days, or would you rather work less and spend the rest of the time in nature, with those you love?
    Today's episode is to help you set yourself up for the path you truly desire. Remember, there's no formula of success that doesn't have hard work in it, but there’s also a risk of working too hard and forgoing the things that matter to you most. 
    Enjoy!

    Stevie Van Zandt: Self-Discovery, Activism, and Rock & Roll

    Stevie Van Zandt: Self-Discovery, Activism, and Rock & Roll

    Musician, actor, journalist, political activist, philanthropist and, now, book author. Stevie Van Zandt is a lot more than Bruce Springsteen’s legendary E-Street Band guitarist, and much more than The Sopranos’ Silvio Dante.
    In today’s episode, Stevie takes us through how a self-assured, Catholic New Jersey kid ended up first performing on the world’s biggest rock’n’roll stages, then fighting against apartheid in South Africa, and eventually starring in one of the most successful TV series of all time.
    Some highlights from our conversation:
    If you want to change your career, make sure you have something good to fall back on. Having success later in life often means that you get to enjoy it more – and are better at what you do. In life, you don’t need to pick whether to lead or to be a leader: you can be both a good soldier and a good boss. Creating content and marketing that content are two faces of the same coin – being good at both leads you to success. Stevie’s first book, the memoir Unrequited Infatuations, is out now in hardcover, e-book, and audio.
    Enjoy!

    Robert Greene: Daily Meditations to Transform Your Life

    Robert Greene: Daily Meditations to Transform Your Life

    “If you go deeper into yourself, you’ll find below the surface four or five things, other emotions, other things going on at the same time. Perhaps things from your childhood, things that are unconscious. You’re not even aware of what’s truly motivating your behavior. You’re kind of sleepwalking. You think that you do things for reason A, but actually, there’s B, C, D, E, and F below the surface. So you’re a mystery to yourself.” - Robert Greene
    Robert Greene is a six-time New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and strategist known for his works on mastery, power, and seduction. His international bestsellers include The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction, The 33 Strategies of War, The 50th Law (partnered with 50 Cent), Mastery, and The Laws of Human Nature. He attended the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, earning a B.A. in classical studies.
    Robert’s work has made him a somewhat controversial figure, with his books on power and seduction drawing criticism for being ruthless, amoral, and even dangerous. Yet his work has continued to influence millions of readers, including high-level executives, professional athletes, and top musicians like 50 Cent and Jay-Z.
    His latest book, The Daily Laws, is a compilation of insights gathered over the past 22 years and sparked by a conversation with his mentee and bestselling author, Ryan Holiday. The book is a collection of daily meditations broken into four quarters that draw inspiration from his ideas on mastery, power, seduction, and understanding human nature.
    In this episode, Robert shares how you can discover your creative calling by uncovering your hidden motivations and ignoring the worldly distractions telling you how you should live. He also shares what motivated him to become a prolific writer and how you can find your place in life.
    Highlights from our conversation include:
    How to become aware of what truly motivates you by digging below the surface. Why Robert practices daily meditation to better understand his attitude and the negative patterns altering his life. Why almost everyone has an incorrect opinion of themself, and how they can overcome it through self-reflection. Details about his new book, The Daily Laws, and how to apply each daily meditation to your life. Plus much more .... Enjoy!

    Design + Creativity Lecture with Renowned Designer Paula Scher

    Design + Creativity Lecture with Renowned Designer Paula Scher

    EDITORS NOTE: If you want to see some of the work/imagery referenced in this podcast, you can follow along with timestamps on the blog.
    Graphic designers are tasked with creating new and all-encompassing identities for institutions, from signage to promotional materials and even swag. But what happens after the job is done and the institution is responsible for implementing their new identity all on their own?
    The work of Paula Scher, a designer and partner in the New York office of the international design consultancy Pentagram and one of the world’s most acclaimed graphic designers, pushes the boundaries of visual communication while establishing a template meant to be tinkered with. She provides her clients with a kit of parts in the form of typography that will serve them and their institutions for years to come.
    Scher has established a legacy by pushing the boundaries of what typography can be. She isn’t afraid to invent new typefaces or use existing ones in completely unexpected ways to communicate the mission and aspirations of the project. Her work demonstrates that graphic design can be much more than letters and shapes on a page, but rather a tool to provoke, engage and even shape the way people occupy a space.
    To accompany the episode, I added some of the images from Paula's presentation on my blog here.
    Enjoy!

This level of depth is necessary

I met Chase for the first time in 2015. I was a member of a creative live audience. Fast forward to today and Chase is still a person I would consider to be a mentor and friend and the way that he positions himself in the world is that the benefit of everyone around him. And I have mad love and appreciation for that. The show is incredible and really breaks down the barriers of what it means to be a creative and an entrepreneur. @MichaelUnbroken
