The B&E Podcast #132
“The Illusion of How a Masterpiece is Made”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
C’mon, let’s be honest, we all want to make a masterpiece of some kind. Who wouldn’t want to? Why wouldn’t you want to? We have a lot of ideas of how that is made and many of them are complete fallacies. So how does one create a masterpiece? Time to dive in!
POINT #1: “SEEDS OF IDEAS”
– Sometimes a seed is all you need. We often overlook these simple but often powerful initial inspirations believing we need to have the whole flower for it to be “good” or worthwhile. Go with the seed. Nurture, follow, respond, and see what happens.
POINT #2: “YOU BEING AUTHENTIC?”
– Getting connected to our authentic self and voice is crucial if we want to have any hope of ever creating something anyone considers a masterpiece, including ourselves. Only through such expression of genuine honesty can we have the right materials to take it beyond.
POINT #3: “GOTTA HAVE FAITH”
– Even if you’ve done everything right, there are no guarantees for any particular outcome. Having faith in your project and what brought you to it in the first place helps you detach from the results, create with greater clarity, joy, and freedom.

Mark Zuckerberg Quote – “Let me tell you a secret: Ideas don’t come out fully formed. They only become clear as you work on them. You just have to get started. If I had to understand everything about connecting people before I began, I never would have started Facebook. Movies and pop culture get this all wrong. The idea of a single eureka moment is a dangerous lie. It makes us feel inadequate since we haven’t had ours. It prevents people with seeds of good ideas from getting started.”
