Set a date. Tell everyone you know. Stop dreaming and start doing if you want to solve the mystery of HOW.
It's amazing when you do this, this little "set a date, tell everyone you know." It's amazing to watch WHY become HOW very quickly once you start to actually put tangible things into action.
Give yourself a 90 day challenge for HOW. Stop asking WHY, like right this second, stop asking WHY. Announce to the world, and don't whisper it. Tell everyone you know.
I'm here to help solve the mystery of HOW. Set a date. 90 days. Always good. Not too long. Not too short. Tell everyone you know. You can't do one without the other.
Creative people who get things done do not find HOW mysterious at all.
There are a lot of famous people in history who stopped asking WHY and started asking HOW.
I just want to quickly explore the edges of HOW together because that, to me, kind of defines a creative life, and it's kind of what CreativeMornings is about, to me.
How, on the other hand, is very exciting to me because HOW leads to momentum and action and energy and change.
I've noticed one really curious thing with WHY. WHY can lead very quickly down a road to complete paralysis for a lot of creative people.
The real mystery for most creative people, I find, on any kind of project, and people in general, but creative people especially - the real mystery is HOW. Not WHY. But WHY gets in the way a lot.
When looking at a problem that seems impossible, there's probably a solution there somewhere. You just have to look for it. You have to kind of put on a different perspective, or you have to look at things a little differently and you might find a solution for it.
When mysteries are revealed, they have an equal amount of power. There's that kind of ah-ha moment is really strong.
Mysteries can be really powerful. They can be absolutely thrilling. They can be terrifying. The unknown has a lot of power.
I invite you to become curious about yourself and explore the mysteries that you find.
At the end of the day, you're the only person that you're guaranteed to spend the rest of your life with. The only one.
Studies have shown that curiosity helps strengthen relationships.
Exploring the mystery of me through wonder and curiosity, let me laugh at myself, to be playful and to discover myself.
Exploring the mystery of me allowed me to push boundaries, even the boundaries of my own limitations.
As I continued on my journey, I started to explore myself, instead of judging myself. I saw some of the ways I had failed had actually been the catalyst for future success.
What's the biggest mystery to me? Well, the biggest mystery to me, is me.
When we are faced with something that is difficult or impossible to understand or explain, dive into it. Put on your inner child lens and allow yourself to become curious. It can be a really beautiful thing.
When we allow fear to be next in line after being faced with something mysterious, we really do a big disservice to ourselves. We deny ourselves to look into something that holds so much more than we may ever have imagined. When we are more curious, we in turn, develop more compassion, and it all comes back to the fact that we are a lot less differeint than we think we are.
This is one of the beauties that mystery provides. It's an opportunity and desire to be curious.
¿Qué estarías haciendo ahorita si no tuvieras miedo?
Confidence comes from resilience.
Tutorials can only teach you one way, where if you teach yourself, you know why you are doing things a certain way, not just being told to do things a certain way.
I've never been someone who's known what they've wanted to do. That was always a mystery to me.
Collaboration is about being open, be willing to take on other people's ideas, but then editing.
It's a reminder that life is precious.
Welcome the stranger.
Everything you see is art and people and community.
Where things we think are impossible become possible.
We are pure mystery, of delight, of pleasure.
We're a pleasure machine ... or a pain machine.
We live in a society where pain is legitimized, not pleasure.
And how historically do we deal with this "why" question? We alienate ourselves. We live in a society full of models of success ... if on the one hand these models give us a security, a reference to what it takes to be successful, on the other hand they make us hostage.
If you can get people to be curious, they are much more likely to change their views.
Learning from each other
Science is humans embracing mystery.
Science does not produce viewpoints on the world that can be countered with alternative facts taken to be equally true.
Mysteries are meaningful questions yet unanswered.
When you put down words to a page, sometimes you get in the way of the way that you talk.
Being curious in every moment, in every person and in every circumstance, even a stranger, could be a great insight for you.
The clearer and the more distilled you can be in your messaging, the more the consumer is going to engage.
Approach creativity and your process more like controlled chaos, in the sense that you embrace the fact that creativity is a mystery.
Pressure produces predictability.
Creativity is not a machine that you can just demand product of.
Your tribe are the people who see you as your superhero self, even if you haven't gotten there yet.
Everything we do from this moment forward, is about the tribe.
Your tribe are the people who see you as your superhero self, even if you haven't gotten there yet.
It doesn't matter how much money you have, it doesn't matter how successful you become; if you are not living your mission, you are not happy. You are not fulfilled. You are feeling a void and it's never going to go away if you don't claim your mission.
We need super extraordinary humans to be able to solve these extraordinary challenges we're currently facing. You can't say that you care about the planet, that you care about your community if you're not being a superhero.
Your success is inevitable. Your victory is inevitable. Don't get caught up in appearances, because the people that programmed you into appearances are the ones that f*cked up the plan in the first place; with what they could touch, with all of their things, with what they could measure. T
The only thing that can happen after darkness is light.
Words like 'homeowner' didn't apply to me anymore; words like 'married' didn't apply; words like 'having a job' didn't apply. So who was I? Who was the essence of who I was when all of these other parts were being stripped? And I realized: I'm water.
So I just kind of put my hands up and I asked the universe to help me. I said, "I want to be my authentic self, I want my light to shine. I need help."
To many I looked like the semblance of an upwardly mobile, success, pro-black family. Everything was going well, the only thing that was going wrong was the fact that I was completely miserable. I was completely unhappy. I had all of these things, but none of them fed my soul.
I am the answered prayers of my ancestors. I am a descendant of Kings and Queens and builders. I'm also the descendant of sharecroppers and factory workers and domestic servants. My parents decided they were going to live a new life, so them like many countless African Americans throughout America decided that they were going to be part of the great black migration out of the South.
You can’t get to the light without first going through the darkness. The only reason you know what light looks like is cause you were first in darkness.
You're overthinking it, and you will change the outcome. Just do the first thing you were going to do and then go full force.
We have to allow this death to come and also know that this rebirth is inevitable. It’s inevitable. Your success is inevitable, your victory is inevitable. Don’t get caught up in appearances. Because the people that programmed you into appearances, are the ones that fucked up the plan in the first place! With what they could touch, with all of their things, with what they could measure, they had it all figured out. And look at the state of the planet.
But if we are so disconnected…and all we see are the laws that they say they want to pass, the walls that they say they want to build, the leaders that they are putting into power, the wars, if all we get focused on is what we can see, we’ve missed it. Because we have to understand that despite what you see, something else is happening underneath the surface. That there is something else being born, that there is something else is going to emerge, but you don’t get to watch it grow! So how do you navigate that? How do you navigate this reality of knowing something is bubbling, we can all feel it in our bodies, but none of know what it’s gonna look like when we get through the other side.
And we’re in this dark time…but the cycle of life, the sun rises everyday and it goes back to darkness. You were born in the light and then you go back to the earth into the dark. After food is done and life is going back to its compostable state, it goes back to the dark. That is the natural cycle, the only thing that can happen after darkness is light. The only thing!
When you’re not grounded and rooted in something, the biggest feeling that you feel is fear. And I think that this is such an interesting concept because we live in a society that is terrified, terrified of darkness. Terrified of what they can’t see, define, measure, hold, terrified of what’s not tangible. So we live in a society that has spent thousands and thousands of years creating more tangible things. Every single one of us in this room has too much stuff in our homes, too much stuff in our closets, too many tangible things on the planet. So many tangible things that now we’re destroying the planet with all of our things…we’re contaminating life with all of our things. We can’t move to the heart place…but that’s where all the life comes, that’s where all the magic happens.
Do not destroy what someone has created. Make your own contribution instead.
19th century English poet, painter, and visionary William Blake once said something like: "you can either create your own system, or always be a slave to someone else's".
But the real success consists in solving your own mystery, answering the question. What am I doing here?
I am full of respect and admiration for someone able to turn a personal drama into hope for other people.
Unfortunately, very often we go out on stage too early, I mean all kinds of self-presentation.
All the more if your success is material or financial, you are expected to share it with others.
,,Jeżeli udaje Ci się osiągnąć sukces czy karierę, to niemal twoim obowiązkiem jest podzielić się tym z ludźmi i miejscem, którzy cię kiedyś zasilali. "
[Failure] doesn't matter. You can always learn something.
I get the feeling that young children, up to the age of 5 or 6, see the world as a very mysterious place. But then that sense of mystery seems to go at a certain point...
I was going to show you a picture of this incredibly erotic forbidden sculpture. But I'll just show you a picture of 3 baby goats dressed in cardigans...
“Embrace mystery with all you are in all you do.”
You're at the zero point in a timeline for everything.
We have to go into a place of mystery for what we do to matter. No mystery, no possibility.
If there are no stakes, there is no genuine possibility in what you're creating. Because the only way for there to be no stakes is if it's already been done.
For us to do great work in the world, for us to create on the level where it matters—and if there are no stakes it does not matter—so there have to be stakes because we want to create something that matters.
"You don't permission from anybody. You need permission from yourself."
"I firmly believe that it is the most optimistic time that we've ever been in, because politics are dwindling, structures are dwindling...and you as the creator...can put things into the world in a way that nothing from the top-down can."
"...A 1:1 relationship between thought, creation and scale. That is the most powerful thing that I can ever imagine."
