Paul Jun - "Creativity is an act of becoming."

tips from podcast guests Nov 19, 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 writer and photographer, Paul Jun. Tune into this entire conversation here.

[PAUL] I always go back to this. I think it's so incredibly wise. Basically, a group of high schoolers wrote to Kurt Vonnegut asking for particularly creative advice. And he said in short, you know, find out what's inside of you.

Try dancing, try painting, you know, try writing—not to get money or fame, but to become someone. And I think creativity, for me, you know, over the last six-seven years of being a writer and now being a photographer, to me it's an act of becoming.

It's an act of finding out what's actually inside of you. What moves you. What inspires you. How you engage with the world and communicate that to an audience, to a person.

And so, yeah, I think ultimately it's about it's becoming and learning about oneself.

Paul delivered a powerful framing of what creativity is for. How are you leveraging your creativity in service of who you're becoming today?
