Popular Culture

The pop culture phenomena that we become awestruck with were made up of people just like you and me.

From a mixture of environment, observation, imagination, twisted reality, hard work, and a touch of luck these creations came into being.

Think Harry Potter or Hamilton, Mickey Mouse or Marvel, Toy Story or Transformers.

Something being adopted as “mainstream” or “popular” was once scribbled and scrutinized by its various creators.

Nobody was going to like them and it wasn’t going to work.

Until it did.

We might not have the next Harry Potter written but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t put in the effort to make the attempt.

It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to do the thing we want to do and keep iterating when we feel compelled.

We may not have the next pop culture creation but our thing will be a success to us and those we surround ourselves with.

That’s all that should matter and it should be the motivation we need to start.

Ms. Bliss

Everything we create gets us one small step closer to pure bliss.

It’s not about producing great pieces.

Those come in waves.

It’s about producing the pieces we want to produce.

We can’t worry about how they are accepted.

We only can worry if we accept ourselves.

Squeeze The Creative Juices

When creativity flows one of the worst things we can do is suppress it.

We can’t be certain that the idea or flow of consciousness will ever come again.

We must embrace it head-on.

Write it down.

Start building.

Give yourself a start.

It won’t be complete today but we’ve seeded an idea that was stuck inside and wanted to be released.

It’s now out of our heads.

It’s become real.

It’s time to act on it.

Coffee Talk

A coffee cup is made for coffee. Until it’s not.

A coffee cup can be used for:
Tea and other drinks
As a measuring cup
To rinse your mouth while brushing
To hold pens and pencils
To trace a circle
To fill with loose change

We can keep going but the point is that just because a tool was intended for one purpose it doesn’t mean it can’t be used for many others.

Before we go and buy the latest widget to solve a problem we should look around and see if we can create a solution. We get to use our creativity and imagination like we’re kids again. We get to solve a puzzle.

It pushes us a bit outside our comfort zone and we get to take agency over the decision. It could be small but it will help us grow. It helps us think outside the box. It lets us question what can be possible if this is possible.

Sometimes a coffee cup is for coffee. Until it’s not.

Create Now. Edit Later.

One of the biggest challenges I had in getting over the hump of creating content (Podcasts, books, blogs, etc) is that I didn’t know what I didn’t know. I felt I needed all of the answers upfront before I could put “pen to paper” and create something magical.

I was completely wrong.

Hashing our ideas out in real time helps us do a few things…

We learn – We start finding ways that we work best, with how we structure our time, and when it’s the right time for us to do our best work

We evolve – We find efficiencies in our work. We find areas we can tweak and remove and other areas that need some extra “TLC”.

We focus – All of the ideas floating around in our heads, when put into a tangible format, start to become much clearer. We can understand where the gold is and distinguish between what works and what doesn’t. It doesn’t mean it won’t be relevant in the future it means we can put a pin in it for now and focus on the most important stuff.

The first step is always the hardest. The idea part isn’t hard but bringing it into reality.

Beethoven’s 5th symphony started with one note. Starry Night began with one stroke of the brush. Edison’s invention of the light bulb started with one failed experiment.

Our idea can’t begin until it is put into reality.

We have to get it out of our heads and start sculpting it.

Then, we let it transform from there.
