We really put ourselves out there when we share creative ideas and our creative work. The topic of creativity can often times feel heady and wishy washy, because everyone has their own definition of creativity. In this episode we talk through the more tangible aspects of creativity like what to do when you’re in a rut or uninspired, the literal tricks for how to keep fresh eyes and change things up, plus unique ways to look at, and deal with, success and failure. Bryan Danielson and I review the book “Creative Quest” By Questlove. It was this months pick for the Why Not Now? Read A Book Club.

If you haven’t read “Creative Quest”, no sweat. You actually don’t need to have because Bryan and I share all of the highlights and key takeaways, so consider this your cliff notes.

For those of you who are new to the show. Bryan Danielson and I launched the Why Not Now Read A Book Club a couple of months ago. We have listeners vote on a book on social media and then we read it together. The hashtag is #WhyNotNowReadABook. We all share our thoughts and photos on social as we’re reading along, because shelfie is the new selfie.

If you’re not familiar with Bryan, he’s a WWE Superstar, a gardener, a lover of planet earth, and he’s on the Total Bellas reality show on E! Yep, he’s the cool cat married to Brie Bella.

Big props to everyone who’s reading along with us!

Follow Bryan on Twitter, and use the #WhyNotNowReadABook hashtag to join the club and have your say about what book we review next.
