I didn't want to face how much that experience had hurt me but sometimes in the things that hurt us, it's also hard to face that there was some beauty there.

You've got to pinpoint what's underneath your creative anxiety.
You're probably going to cry and it's okay... I felt so vulnerable having to write this spiritual memoir, having to write thing that were hard to write about.
I never wanted to write another book or create another project because it was time. I think that's a weird way to come into the creative process.
When we think about transformational change – when we think about what’s missing – it’s interesting what you can accomplish if you execute a plan to realize a thing that fits into the gap that exists.
Choose the crazy option. The crazy options always mean a better story.
O propósito é a grande ferramenta que vai conseguir proporcionar valor pros dois lados, tanto para clientes quanto para funcionários.
One of the things I like to do with my pieces is always challenge the notion of space, movement, implied movement... Movement is life.

Bartering is not dead.
Understand what skill does and what it means to work in the outside world... now you're competing with everything else.
If you want it, you have to get it. You cannot rely on anyone else.
One, no one owes you anything. Two, no one invited you into the art world (ie. no one owes you anything).
If you play baseball and you come home with your uniform without dirt, then you didn't play.
Your imagination can be a very dangerous thing if you don’t express it.
Consider where you are now. Forget where you were two months ago, forget where you want to be. Where are you now? What are you experiencing? And using that as the fodder for whatever it is you’re going to make or write about, or even if that looks super different than what you would normally do.
It’s important just to grant yourself some grace in this situation. We all have to give each other and ourselves permission to not do what we had always imagined. This is not the ideal time, necessarily.
One of the ways that you can deal with your imagination causing you anxiety is to express it, to write it down, to make art about it, to talk about it openly.
For anybody who is trying to show up creatively . . . and is struggling to do that, to think about giving yourself an assignment that’s really easy, in your comfort zone. Something that just requires showing up and doing something really simple. Because often it’s just starting that’s the hard part.
Creating in times of stress is like running in humidity. You can do it, it just requires a lot more effort. . . . It’s important to remember that and grant yourself some permission to go slower, to walk through this.
Stress can really zap our creativity. And we are in a time of unprecedented stress, not just each of us personally, but collectively.
I had to let go of either sort of changing my expectations slightly—and in some cases really profoundly—for what I was going to be working on and what I was going to be working toward.
Friends, the world needs you to discern and to claim your purpose NOW.
“It didn't really matter what I did. But I can tell you one thing, I ran with absolute joy. I gave it my heart. I put everything into it. And that is Kamiwaza. And it doesn't matter where you finish, it is that intention that you put into it. That wholeheartedness."
"Safety is just again another huge pitfall. Try and play it safe, life is going to hopeless. The average-ness, more-ness, the same-ness, the safe-ness is just going to leave you lost."
You don't have to be in the right place at the right time, or have the right idea. You can get right to it, right now, if you really want to. Everything else is just excuses.
