How To Get Unstuck and Electrify Your Creative Process

Seth Godin in conversation with Paul Kemp-Robertson

For any artist or visionary who feels stuck, internationally bestselling entrepreneur and business thinker Seth Godin has a deceptively simple answer: commit to the practice.

The magic of the creative process is that there is no magic.

Lost in all the noise around us is the proven truth about creativity: it’s the result of desire— the desire to find a new truth, solve an old problem, or serve someone else. Creativity is a choice, it’s not a bolt of lightning from somewhere else.

Seth Godin has walked this walk. He’s started successful companies, taught millions of people and left his mark on our creative culture. BusinessWeek calls him ‘the ultimate entrepreneur for the information age’; he is the author of 19 international bestsellers translated into more than 35 languages, writes one of the world’s most popular and influential blogs, founded the altMBA and has transformed the work of thousands of people across the globe.

Now he joins How To Academy to share his insights in this unmissable livestream event.

Seth will turn your assumptions about the creative process upside down and help you to look at the world from a different angle. You will recognise your work for what it is: an act of generosity and a way to make change, as well as what it can never be, something that will make everyone happy.

In conversation with Paul Kemp-Robertson, Co-founder and Chief Brand Officer of Contagious Communications, Seth will help you dance with your fear, take the risks worth taking and embrace the empathy required to make work that connects with others.

You’ll walk away with practical strategies for overpowering the naysayers, radically trusting your own voice and finally doing the work you were put on this earth to do.
