The day-to-day battles we fight, using bravery to fight mediocrity
“Creativity and bravery are two sides of the same coin. It is impossible to execute a creative act without bravery.” Todd Henry discusses how being brave isn’t just about how we handle certain moments of our lives: it’s about the choices, even small ones, we make daily. “At the end of your life you’ll point to a delta, a sum total of change that exist in this world because you were alive. The choices we make every day on where we want to put our focus, assets, time and energy ultimately determine the body of work that we build.” Henry walks through seven everyday acts of bravery, including the ways in which we look at at ourselves, staying connected and choosing our battles, asking ourselves why we are doing what we are doing and what is the greater battle we’re trying to fight.
