Chris Gill - "Realizing our ideal."

tips from podcast guests Dec 03, 2021

Insight and inspiration for flying higher in the difference only you can make from guests who have appeared on Creative on Purpose Live.

This week's wisdom comes from a conversation with Christopher Gill, Emeritus Professor of Ancient Thought at the University of Exeter. Tune into this entire conversation here.

[CHRIS] I think that the Stoics, what I think, the Stoics suggest two things. One is that this art of living is a matter of realizing our ideal. It's a matter of identifying and constantly working at thinking about what your ideal is.

And then, I think, it's realizing that we all have the potential to realize our ideals. We all have this creativity, this potentiality, this capacity to work towards it. Perhaps not always to realize it, but to work towards it.

I think those two things, the sense of the importance of the art and the capacity that we all have to realize our potential. Those two things.

 Chris delivered a powerful framing of how creativity plays into the art of living well and realizing our potential. How are you consciously leveraging your creative capacity today?
