Some days I rue the fact that I have a ridiculous number of blogs in my feed reader. Then other days, like today, I don’t.
Today I followed through on links from a post by Tim Ferriss of The 4 Hour Work Week and more recently The 4 Hour Body. It led me to a TED talk by Elizabeth Gilbert on Genius. Now, I do this creativity lark here at Oh Waily Waily out of a sheer hobbyist enjoyment of taking ideas and experiences out of my head and life and putting them on some virtual paper. However, I know a few of you take the path of writing a lot more seriously than I. I thought you might like this.
So enjoy the almost 20 minute talk and I hope when you get to the end you put your Genius in a good spot. Mine is going to be kept over my left shoulder from now on, as it is an appropriate spot for watching what I’m going to do next.
