An Audience of One
Reclaiming Creativity for Its Own Sake
Srinivas Rao has a super-popular podcast called Unmistakable Creative where he’s interviewed over 500 creative people—from Seth Godin and Tim Ferriss to Gretchen Rubin and Adam Grant. I got this book from Penguin Random House (thanks for another great new book!). It’s a quick, fun look at the importance of doing work YOU are excited about and letting your disciplined commitment to the practice of your craft lead to the results. (Focusing on that audience of one? It’s the best way to the audience of millions.) Big Ideas we explore include the four key aspects we need to "listen" for in the creative process, seeing our work as a GIFT rather than as a chore, the addictive power of flow, the fact that a "cognitive athlete" would never "smoke" (yet we all do), the importance of Optimizing PHYSICAL energy if you want sustainable creative energy, mono-tasking vs. task-switching (do the math, folks!), and knowing your reason to get up in the morning (yours?). Want to reach millions? Start with an audience of one--you!
