Creating Your Life

My favorite interviews

Michael Meade was interviewed by Chase Jarvis and he had this to say about creative “genius” and how to identify your own creative gifts:

“Genius is discovered during adversity. Carl Jung said ‘genius hides behind the wound.’ There is an old saying that ‘During adversity genius is revealed. During comfort it is concealed.’ So a person can go to any time they were in big trouble and start to examine how did they survive. Whatever way they survived, there’s some genius in that method.”

I love this because it shows us how creativity isn’t just a “nice to have” thing that we do in our spare time because it’s fun. Often it’s what saves us from very difficult times in life.
