When You Create [for Lisa Oz]

Today’s newsletter cartoon was inspired by Lisa Oz, wife of Doctor Oz, interviewing me for Oprah Radio last week, while I was in New York City.

It was a good interview. Lisa is a lovely woman who asked VERY smart questions about Creativity. She also plugged both my books, which was quite nice for me. Heh.

And I did my best to answer her questions. As I get older I’m less squeamish about talking about creativity in spiritual terms, rather than just “Because it’s cool and sexy” terms.

And whether you believe in God or Buddha or Allah or something else entirely, this creativity/spirituality is something you should not be afraid of exploring at some point. Life is short and you’re going to be dead one day; that’s all the motivation you need.

So I designed Lisa this cartoon to go on her business card. Like I said, I enjoyed the interview.

Anyway, I’m happy to report that the interview is broadcasting tomorrow, (Wednesday) at noon New York time [EST] on XM 111 and Sirius 204. It’s about 20 minutes long, so if you have satellite radio, I hope you’ll give it a listen.

Thanks, and Godspeed!

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
