timschurrer The mugs in my collection are reminders of places I've been and time I've shared with dear friends. This morning, I'm taken back to Little Goat Diner in Chicago with @kylereid @_averykate @koulacal @katieschurrer and @richardkylehicks. We were there on a Sunday morning this past November and had just wrapped up the final #StorylineConf.

That conference changed my life several years ago when I attended the first one in Portland before really knowing Don. It was at Storyline where I learned life is so much more fulfilling when pursuing meaning over pleasure.

To everyone who is pursuing a meaningful story and who is undoubtedly making a difference in the world around them, keep pressing on. The world needs more good stories.

timschurrer I've been writing everyday for an upcoming talk and then have been working on the upcoming @storybrand_ podcast, trying to get them both just right. I'm reminded how hard creating is. My comfort zone is organizing details and managing projects. But creating something that doesn't already exist is where I feel like I'm swimming in the deep end. It can be deflating when things don't go perfectly. But if I've learned anything from Don the past several years and from Anne Lamott's book "Bird by Bird," it's to keep creating. To persist. So that's what I'm going to do this morning. Get another hour of writing done for my talk and be grateful to have written. Creating is vulnerable and it's easy to get self-conscious about it. Gonna fight through that, too. 1w

  •   samsamsharee I put a quote by the painter Matisse on a coffee cup. He said, "Creativity takes courage." Every time I create something whether with thread and my hands or words on a page, I see only the flaws. Sharing my creations with others means I have to make myself look beyond those flaws to see the treasure buried deeper underneath them. It takes courage to present your flaws to the world hoping they dig with you for the treasure. Be brave. 1w
