Getting to Know Yourself to Find Your Creative Voice

How well do you know yourself? We put a good amount of time and energy into getting to know others: their kids’ names, where they’re from, what their interests are, etc. But do we put the same amount of energy into getting to know ourselves? We should, because getting to know yourself can help you […]

How Stress and Worry Can Fuel Creativity

Inspiration can be found everywhere. While we at Design.org are big proponents of operating out of love rather than fear, and maintaining a positive instead of a negative focus, we also have to acknowledge that creativity can be inspired by and born from dark, sad, or “down” feelings as well. In this post, I’ll discuss […]

The Power of Being Fearless and Unattached

Fear is the creative’s worst enemy, which is why it comes up in a lot of our discussions here at Design.org.

From that perspective, empowering others to be courageous might seem like something you could never do […]

Overcoming Fears Through Creative Risk Taking

Creativity is hard. It can also be scary. And taking creative risks is even scarier. But what if I told you that those very risks are the things that could help you break free from fear and live a happier, more creative life? Overcoming fears through creative risk taking isn’t something most creatives consider, but […]

Courage: Choosing to Acknowledge Fear

Many of us think of courage as the opposite of fear. When we have courage we don’t have fear, and vice versa. The two do not, and cannot, coexist. The problem with that line of thinking comes with real-life experience. When you try to reconcile the ideas of courage and fear in the real world, […]
