Three Pieces of #HolidayInspo You Cannot Miss
Holidays are the best, right?
As well as spending precious time with the people we love, one of the greatest parts of the break can be having the time and headspace, to take a minute, look around and get inspired again.
So before you throw yourself into the wild and wondrous days of eating, drinking and being merry, we have three little gifts of creative inspiration for you to watch, listen and read.
This commencement speech from Neil Gaiman, the English author of comics and books for readers of all ages is nothing short of goosebumpy brilliance. Whether you’re a creative, a numbers fanatic or working hard for that next promotion, literally every sentence he shares here are gold insights on work and life. Check it out to hear everything he wishes he’d known starting out, a few things he did know and the best piece of advice he ever got and completely failed to follow.
Greatest quote on vulnerability and trying really hard at...anything:
“The moment that you feel, just possibly, you are walking down the street naked, exposing too much of your heart and your mind, and what exists on the inside, showing too much of yourself...That is the moment, you might be starting to get it right.”
On Being delves into the animating questions that lie at the heart of human life. What does it mean to be human and how can we live better, more conscious lives? Krista Tippett’s conversations with philosophers, writers, poets, anthropologists and all in between, will have you nodding thoughtfully with eyes closed; pressing your lips to make ‘mmm’ sounds and telling anyone who’ll listen (and probably many who won’t) just how enlightening the daily commute to work can become.
Great episode to start with: Interview with Seth Godin

This post from yesterday is a beautiful reminder to stay in the moment and be conscious of what’s really important amidst all the craziness of the holiday season.
