The B&E Podcast #029
“Going Beyond What’s Already Been Done”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
We get into past experiences and how they can limit us as creatives. Our realm is in the unknown and in trusting our truth, our experience, and voice. Relying on past successes is a huge trap. Find a new way.
POINT #1: “DON’T GET STUCK IN THE PAST”
-We can learn our lessons through past works, successes, and triumphs but also learn when to move on. After all, we can only live and experience now.
POINT #2: “BEGIN WHERE IT DOESN’T BEGIN”
-What if you told the story where it wouldn’t traditionally be? What’s the after? What’s the beginning? What would that look like? What if it was a different drama? There are infinite roads to pursue.
POINT #3: “CHALLENGE YOURSELF — YOUR TRUTH IS WAITING TO BE TOLD”
-You have a voice. Your experience of life is unique and interesting. Trust that and be daring enough to speak it. It’s better than hashing up old cliches — promise.
