Creativity, wisdom and laughs by Courtney Smith Kramer

I had such a blast talking to “The Creative Life” podcast founder James Taylor! We talked about a lot of things (and that accent! #Britsrule), but pointedly about why we really do get our best ideas in the shower – I call it “Double D’s in the shower – and more, including:

  • The 3% Conference
  • Mistaking creativity with artistry
  • The Double D’s – Distraction and Dopamine <– wait for it!
  • Empathy Maps
  • Mindmaps
  • Wine culture
  • Tim Ferriss
  • The saboteur
  • Deep listening
  • 3 Ideas
  • “When expectations are in alignment, there is no conflict.”
