“Rooting Out Cliches & Being Original”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
The creative worlds are sometimes the most prone to falling into those old, tired, rehashed, reused, derivative ideas — the cliches. They will almost inevitably come up but there’s no need to fear them. Being aware of where they are presenting themselves can often open up new roads and present unique opportunities for your own originality.
POINT #1: “YOU WERE BORN TO BE A CLICHE”
-Most of us are so overexposed to social marketing and engineering that it’s easy to unconsciously start putting that into our work. Being aware of it means that we can make conscious choices for our own voice to be heard.
POINT #2: “THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH FEELING FAMILIAR”
-If your work has a familiarity to it, it’s not necessarily a bad thing. It makes it accessible and opens your audience to the unique, original messages you want to communicate.
POINT #3: “YOU DO HAVE A UNIQUE VOICE”
-Wondering whether you have anything original or unique to say is a moot argument to have with yourself. You have a specific experience of life that gives you a take on the world that no one else has. Find that voice by asking yourself questions and valuing the answers you come up with.
