Elizabeth Gilbert on Creative Genius

Just watched this video last night and had to share it with you today. It was recorded this month at the TED conference.

Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love, muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses -- and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius. It's a funny, personal and moving talk.

wow, that was incredible. I completely understand that anxiety and I think I'm going to have a much easier time now as I work on my next album to not put so much pressure on it being the best I can do but that I show up for my part and do my best to run for that pencil!!

Thank you Bob so, so much for sharing it I'm going to forward a bunch of friends over too!

Wow this totally helped me through my day when I didn't "feel" like working. I said "I would like to state for the record that I showed up and did my part!" and then I got to work! :D
