The B&E Podcast #106
“The Creative Bond of True Friendship”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
There’s nothing like having friends around when we’re in creating. But what does that mean? Yes, we can literally have our friends collaborate with us on projects which open us up to new sides of each other we’ve never really seen and even deepen our relationships. How about being a friend and giving friendship to all those around you who are involved? What then? What does that do? Find out now!
POINT #1: “FRIENDS, BOUNDARIES, INTIMACY”
-If we’re working closely with our friends it’s important to be able to remain professional especially since all kinds of unexpected things can happen. Know when you’re being a friend, and know when you’re assuming another role. When you always respect and value each other, your personal relationships can deepen as a result.
POINT #2: “FAILURE IS SUCCESS”
-We separate failure and success as different things. What if they were part of the same thing? When we stop painting failure in a negative light we can become less afraid of it and offer this perspective to others around us. When creative partners aren’t in fear of failing in front of one another, amazing things can happen.
POINT #3: “GIVE FRIENDSHIP”
-We cannot control the kind of friendship others give us, but we can freely give it to whoever we choose. By being supportive of others we’re working with, giving them compassion, encouragement, and honesty, we create with more joy and authenticity.

“Making Movies” (Book) – Sidney Lumet
Jeff Foster – “I will always listen deeply to you, but I will never try to fix you, mend you, stop you feeling what you are feeling or give you second-hand, memorised answers. I will never pretend to be ‘the one who knows’, ‘the enlightened one’ or some missionary for a conceptual truth so far removed from real-time, immediate, first-hand present experience. I will not get into drama with you, I will not indulge and feed your stories and mental conclusions and fears, I will not mistake who you are for my story about you, my dream of who you are.But friend, I will meet you in the fires of hell, I will hold your hand there, I will walk with you as far as you need to walk, and not turn away, for you are myself, and in the deepest recesses of our experience we are intimately each other, and we cannot pretend otherwise…”
