Art... Sort Of, Inspiration, Random Ramblings, Writing

How to Keep Going: with Austin Kleon.

I’ve been actively stalking appreciating Austin Kleon’s blog since I finished reading his book, Show Your Work!: 10 Ways to Share Your Creativity and Get Discovered. If you haven’t read this book yet, I HIGHLY recommend it!

Here’s my favorite inspirational YouTube video of the day:

I’m soooo glad I watched this and couldn’t wait to share it with all of you. I wrote down the bullet points of this talk because I wanted to have them available when I watched it again.

  1. Every Day is Groundhog Day.
  2. Build a Bliss Station.
  3. Forget the Noun, Do the Verb.
  4. Make Gifts.
  5. The Ordinary + Extra Attention = The Extraordinary
  6. Art is FOR Life (Not the Other Way Around).
  7. You are Allowed to Change Your Mind.
  8. When in Doubt, Tidy Up.
  9. Demons Hate Fresh Air.
  10. Spend Time on Something that Will Outlast Them.

Have a great day!
