How Essentialism Forces Better Creativity…

Many creatives don’t pursue their creative ambitions because they don’t believe they have the right resources. The philosophy of essentialism, when practiced, can help to free the artistic soul by helping you realize that you might have everything you need. Rather than see your limitations as a negative, use them to your advantage. No one exemplified this better than filmmaker Robert Rodriguez when he made his first feature film, “El Mariachi.” But he’s not the only one who’s used a lack of money and resources to force himself to get more creative. So join me in this lesson and find out how you can apply essentialist thinking to your life and find yourself accomplishing your dreams. After listening, try it out and please be sure to leave a comment with any thoughts or questions. Thanks for tuning in.
