Chase Jarvis talked to Brene Brown in May 2016, this interview had a big impact on me, so I watched it again over the weekend.

They talk about how hard it is to understand vulnerability. In our world very often Vulnerability = Weakness, we think it’s not worth the risk or the criticism.

They also talk about creatives, how they have to get up and do every single day regardless of the critics.

This idea that you are either brave or afraid is bullshit, we are brave and afraid at the exact same time. Living in the arena means getting our ass kicked, living through the hurt, the pain and getting up and being brave once again.

“When we stop caring what people think we loose our capacity for connection, when we are defined what people think we loose the courage to be vulnerable.”

Vulnerability at work, it’s the first thing I look for when I hire you and the last thing I want you to see of me. You can be vulnerable but not too vulnerable, its like saying you can be healthy but not too healthy.

Guilt = I did a bad thing
Shame = I am bad a bad person
(Learn this by heart)

Another important point made is watching out for Compliments ‘bathed’ in passive aggressiveness. For example….. “wow, I didn’t know you were so sensitive I’m so sorry.” Very subtle but very powerful.

Creativity is the way to learn how to get something to travel from the head to the heart to the hands. Cultivate creativity, Whole hearted living. 

Creativity is the new literacy, there is no creativity without vulnerable, that’s part of the creative process

We share with people who earned the right to hear our story.
