  • Posted to Ask DN: How important is reading as a creative person?, May 18, 2019

    I started a challenge on the first day of this year to read a book every week. I was curious to see how my life would change by the end of the year. I didn't think much of it at first, only that it gave me a deadline to finish a book.

    It's been 5 months and 21 books. I'm almost half way through and I think the greatest thing that this challenge has taught me so far is allowing my brain to get more and more comfortable with the notion that it's okay to be uncomfortable. Even more than okay actually - invigorating.

    To be met, daily, with ideas, perspectives, viewpoints that I may have never been confronted by before carves a space in my mind to be less fearful.

    For what is creativity anyway if not for the lack of fear?

    "I came into the company with this idea in my head on how it would play out, and when it didn’t I felt uncomfortable."

    Humility :)

    I would be hesitant to let your expectations be more important than what this experience has in store to teach you.

    Sounds like patience might be something you'll be learning in this role. Fast doesn't always mean right.
