Daring Greatly in Digiland – It’s Not The Critic Who Counts

“It’s not the critic who counts” has become my mantra that I chant to myself almost daily. As I read
“Daring Greatly” by Brene Brown, I saw changes in my thinking happening almost instantly. The way I perceive others and myself. The way I interact and talk with other people. I will go as far as saying that this book has changed my life more than any other. Is that bold?

Here is the video (you will need to
come to the site if you are in email or a reader) that had a lightening bolt zipping through my body as I realized that the topics covered in the book relate directly to creativity, innovation, why we get stuck (and reasons we “lose our mojo”). It is also the reason I decided to do a “book club” on The Digi Show about this book:

Brene says in the Ted Talk below that “Vulnerability is the birthplace of creativity, innovation, and change.” I believe it. I have seen it in myself and others. I FEEL it almost everyday.

Ali Edwards and Brene are friends, (which Ali tells us about in our first episode about Daring Greatly), so Ali was naturally who I turned to have on the show to talk about this. You can listen to the shows by clicking through the links (or download in iTunes or Stitcher). You can find our discussion in the comments of each show, linked up in the show titles. We will be doing one more show, sharing some experiences of listeners in July:

Episode 81: Creativity and Daring Greatly

Episode 86: Daring For All of Us

It’s not too late to join us! Grab the book
