I have some very exciting things to share with you this week – especially if you’re an auditory learner.
(If you prefer reading, the full transcript of Caylee’s podcast is available with the show notes on her website here).
As you may know, I’m a bit of a creativity nerd. While I only ‘make’ for fun, I’m totally obsessed with learning about the creative process and helping to elevate the voice of other creatives.
Yes, please! More creativity in the world!
I’ve had some wonderful opportunities to share some of the things I’ve been learning about creativity on a few podcasts. The links are below.
I hope you’ll take some time to listen to one and please let me know what you think.
The Spark of Curiosity with Chris Martin
How do you feel learning new subjects and building your skills? Are you filled with boredom or pleasure?
As today’s guest Hannah Fitzgibbon, a creative coach and teacher, shares in this conversation, enjoyment is one of the keys to successful learning.
Using her superpower of curation, Hannah brings quotes, studies, and insights to help creative professionals learn what they need to unblock their work and what’s going on in our brain through the creative process. We also talk about the pillars of creativity, why we run out of ideas, and why flexibility and diversity matter.
The stuff that we spoke about today has revolutionised everything I know about creativity. All I’ve been doing for the past 6 years is creating, listening to people talk about creating, listening to people’s views on creating, helping others create, helping myself create more. And this is the first time that I’ve heard someone speak about creativity in this way.
In our episode, we talk about joy and flow in our creativity. There’s just so much more to it, and so much more depth to this conversation. We speak about a lot, we cover a lot, and a lot of new ideas or different ways of thinking, but I hope you spend time meditating on each point.
Play us, listen to us while you’re creating, but also write down Hannah’s words and spend some time reflecting on the way she sees things and the way she can help you see things. I don’t know exactly what kind of creating you do but I know that Hannah is going to be great for it.
Te Haunui says, “I loved this chat with Hannah the other week. This episode was run a little different, this time with my guest Hannah asking questions. This conversation reminded me of my uni days when we would discuss ideas around art, the meaning of it, criticisms of it etc.”
I’m so grateful to these wonderful hosts for allowing me space to share some of my wisdom. It was so much fun.
What do you think, should I start a podcast?
