Over the past few years the demands on my time have steadily increased and as a result, I find that I’m rarely able to write the more in-depth articles I really want to for this blog. Most of my writing consists of my weekly inspirations which are an important part of my process but I hate being reduced to someone who is just passing on the creativity and experiences of other people.
At the same time, I’ve always been aware of the fact that I am a designer by profession and a writer by necessity. I love writing but I love speaking at conferences and teaching more. So a podcast seemed like a natural next evolution of this site. It’s also selfishly important for me because I’ve learned that when I feel like my process is stagnating or I am not able to be as creative as I want to be then I have to blow up my process and do something different.
So I thought I would do something new and launch this podcast to be able to go in more depth on the subjects that really matter to me like creativity, leadership, innovation and design. I still plan to write some article for the this but feel like the podcast is a forum where I can share a lot more of my experience with everyone.
I already have the first three episodes done which consist of a quick introduction to the show, an episode looking everything I have learned about creativity and the first of a two-part show on leadership. I have another 20+ shows mapped out and some of the topics will be things I can cover in a single episode and some of them I will cover in 3 or 4 episodes that I will release all at once.
