“Demand responsibility but don’t worry at all about authority."

Seth Godin, a bestselling author, entrepreneur and marketer, believes that we have a few things backwards when it comes to getting the work we want and positioning ourselves in the direction we want to go. In this CreativeMornings/NewYork talk from May 2013, he reminds us that it is deep within us to let those in ‘authority' tell us what to do. But, he encourages us to shift the tone from authority to responsibility. Do work on purpose. Make things that matter, even if they’re unpopular. Create work environments that help you succeed, even when that means failing first. And, in his words, go and make something happen.

“I don’t care what your art is. We are all artists."

Tiffany Pratt, a designer and stylist, feels the world is a blank canvas and she sprinkles possibilities everywhere she goes, into everything she does, and elevates the world to a more beautiful place. From teaching art to children and adults alike, to creating the Glitter Pie Art Studio in a Box, to styling homes or photoshoots, Tiffany believes that we are not one thing. She believes that we can be all the things and all the colors. In this talk from CreativeMornings/Toronto on Color from September 2014, Tiffany inspires us to go out and take control of our lives, see the beauty in seemingly un-beautiful things, and figure out what you are synonymous with. Be grateful. Buy the streamers. Happen to your life.

“It is only when you can name your prison that you can do the terrifying, but life affirming and necessary work of setting yourself free.”

Katie Ford went to prison thinking it was her job to inspire the women there. A writer by trade, she volunteered to teach a writing workshop to incarcerated women, downloading classroom rubrics from the Internet and hoping to apply herself to something a little bit more meaningful. What she got was so much more.

In helping incarcerated women write the stories of what they believe led them to prison, Katie began to identify her own “prison” — the first critical step in her personal liberation. In this CreativeMornings/Austin talk on Freedom from May 2014, Katie explores the confines of prison: for the women she mentors and for herself.

“I think it’s everyone’s birth right. Allowing yourself to find the things that you love and dedicating your life to doing them.”

In this talk from CreativeMornings/Los Angeles in May 2014, the renowned musician, DJ, author, photographer and activist, Moby, shares with us his thoughts on the theme of creative freedom. From an early childhood that encouraged creativity to finding his true calling and achieving worldwide success, Moby has learned quite a bit about how pursuing your passion can lead to happiness and fulfillment. The flipside of that is having pressure to continuously succeed. For Moby, it took moving from New York to Los Angeles to continue to find inspiration, have room to experiment, and ultimately permission to fail.
