Embrace The Shake: What To Do When Creativity Evades You
When it comes to equipment or budget, we are not all equals, but creativity is a muse that doesn’t discriminate. Or at least not based on your networking abilities or bank account.
Being an artist, a filmmaker, a writer etc. comes with one fundamental task: you have to find your creativity, handle it, understand it and ultimately nurture it so it won’t evade you. Of course that’s the ideal equation; most of the times, we get lost and lose sight of what we want to say, or how we want to say it, and we go on a journey to find it back.
That is what happened to Phil Hansen, who had to learn how to create again, after his hand started shaking so much he could no longer draw using the technique he wanted to express himself with.
In a 10 minute TED Talk, Hansen shares his journey to find stimulating ways to nurture his creativity and feel passionate about it even though it didn’t go as planned.
Watch Hansen’s talk below and check the list of Ted Talks available on mentorless after the video:

As Brainpicking says so well, donating = loving.
I spend around 30h per week working on mentorless.com to find articles that will interest all of us, write the newsletter and maintain the site (that would need much more of my time to improve, I agree). A lot of us can’t donate, but if you can, and feel this website deserves your help, any amount will make a difference.
