Episode Info:

Austin Kleon (@austinkleon) woke up one day and realized two things: The world seemed to be filled with more and more anger and distraction every day, and – to make matters worse – consistently doing creative work wasn’t getting any easier.

Austin had already written three New York Times bestselling illustrated books. Millions have already learned to Steal Like an Artist – the title of his first book – and they’d learned to put their work out there with Show Your Work.

Austin wasn’t sure how much more he had in him. That inspired him to write his new book, Keep Going: 10 Ways to Stay Creative in Good Times and Bad.

In this conversation, you’ll learn:

  • Why making something for yourself is technically making something for someone else. Learn about the many different ways that focusing on your own creative expression can reach others.
  • How can you be a valuable asset to the creators you admire? Austin shares a specific story that shows you why you have more to offer than you might think.
  • What one thing can you do in the morning – or rather, not do – to do your best work yet?
