I recently had a surreal experience that turned out to be an eye-opener. I walked into a radio studio for an interview -- and realized I wasn't the one doing the interview. Mike Brown and I were the interviewees, and Jay Liebenguth was the host.
Panic set in. I spent almost a dozen years being the interviewer. Being on the other side of the desk felt very, very wrong.
Fortunately, once I got past the whole "I am not in charge" crisis, it was great. Jay is a true talent, and the show was flat-out fun.
This week, give it a try. Let someone else lead.
I just listened to the interview and I'm very excited to attend the session today! It will be fun.
Great job on the creativity session today. Thanks for sharing tips for awakening the creativity in me!!
:( I wish I could attend your creativity session. :) Let someone else lead? Whoo....I gotta work on that. :P
Cory: You are so amazing! Thank you for adding music to our presentation, and being a fun and brilliant member of my creative team!
Amber: We missed you! And I miss you! Mike and I can travel to Chicago for a paying gig ... but we'll give you a couple of days on the new job before we hound you to promote us. :-)
It was great to be part of the Creative Instigation process. Like you, I depend a lot more on the written part and a whole lot less on drawing damn horseys. I just found a cool tool for people like us called Wordle. It generates "word clouds" from a bunch of text you enter and I even gave it my site www.LivewithJay.com and it created a wonderful montage of words that I have written lately including Mike and Jan.
