Lovely TED Talk about creativity by Eat Pray Love author Elizabeth Gilbert. She’s a wonderful speaker, and this talk makes everything feel better. One friend who listened to it said it sounded like she was advocating religion, but I don’t see it that way; I think it also ties into Gladwell’s Outliers 10,000 hours thing.
Basically both of them are saying, if you put the pen on the paper and just keep going; the genius will probably show up eventually.
20 minutes; no need to watch, you can just listen. Here.
Thanks to Hill for the tip.
