#72: Harness Your Brain’s Creative Potential to Pursue Your True Calling with Chase Jarvis
Creativity is a force inside every person that, when unleashed, transforms our lives and delivers vitality to everything we do. Left unexpressed, it can be a poison, leading to unhappiness, unfulfillment, and that feeling there is something missing.
On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Chase Jarvis, an award-winning artist, entrepreneur, and one of the most influential photographers of the past decade. He has created campaigns for Apple, Nike, Red Bull and others, was a contributor to the Pulitzer-winning New York Times story Snowfall, and earned an Emmy nomination for his documentary Portrait of a City. He also created Best Camera–the first photo app to share images to social networks, and is the Founder of CreativeLive, where more than 10 million students learn photography, video, design, music, and business from the world’s top creators and entrepreneurs.
In this episode, Dhru and Chase talk about why establishing a creative practice is as important to our well-being as exercise or nutrition. They discuss Chase’s road map for unlocking your creative potential, pursuing your dreams and succeeding in the process. They also talk about the importance of cultivating meaningful relationships, and building your core community when working to accomplish a goal.
