Embracing Risk and Creativity

Really thoughtful talk by Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert. In the process of finding herself by leaving home and writing the memoir she recognized that society links "creativity" and "suffering" much to the detriment of achievement. Her thoughts captured at the TED conference are worth the 19 minutes.

My best take away: Creative genius is not something bestowed on an individual for a lifetime but more likely something that passes through so... If you don't keep at "it" you won't ever be able to attest to the possibility of success. rocks.
