I have seen over and over how creative executives excel when they understand themselves deeply. Self-knowledge helps you navigate from a place of strength. It informs how you know others.
Knowing yourself means knowing your strengths, values and emotions. Picture the body: Strengths are the head, values are the spine, emotions are the heart. We succeed when we make deliberate decisions guided by these areas.
My friend Ro Rao recently posted a holiday note linking to his latest art project. As an artist, animator, filmmaker, author, and agency creative, Ro is always up for breaking new ground. This time he was dabbling with trash paintings and publically challenged himself to post one per day for 100 days. Lucky for us and Instagram and Facebok, his commitment and follow-through yielded almost twice that amount, and helped inspire this newsletter.
