Asking good questions and becoming curious
Paul’s CreativeMornings activity

[Empathy] does seem to strike a lot of intimidation in people, but I want to share that empathy is not about tears or matching someone's feelings. It's about supporting each other; at the core, empathy is a choice.

We can call the muse, and we don't just have to wait for her.
I believe that my best creative sparks are the results of an empirical error. When it happens, it feels very different from conjuring or imagining."
