#164 Laura Jordan Bambach: How To Get Those Lightbulb Moments (Dropbox Series Part 1)

(Dropbox Series Part 1) I am very excited to bring to you a mini series of four episodes in partnership with Dropbox around the topics of creativity and collaboration. As you know on this podcast I interview interesting creatives about the internet, their work, and how to get more done in less time. Dropbox is a collaborative platform for teams, enabling creativity through their product suite of tools which helps team's all over the world stay in flow and move work forward.


In these four special episodes, I interview the co-authors of Creative Superpowers, a book published by Penguin about re-learning key traits often forgotten from childhood, such as adaptability, curiosity, empathy and fearlessness by the authors Laura Jordan Bambach, Scott Morrison, Mark Earls and Daniele Fiandaca. Each author shared some fascinating stories and anecdotes with me, and have some seriously wise advice about how to live a more creative and fulfilled life. I felt super inspired after chatting to each of them and I hope you do too.


In this episode I speak to Laura Jordan Bambach about how creativity isn't something that happens to you at your desk. How to get good ideas, why you should keep a dream diary, how diversity is still an urgent matter, how to gather all sources of your creativity, and how to not take things too personally as a creative.


I liked this quote from Laura: "You didn't get here by accident. That doesn't mean you should be pig-headed, but your ideas have value."
