There's a common misconception that artists have a monopoly on creativity...But the very act of making waves - no matter the career - is a creative one. The Chase Jarvis Live Show is an exploration of creativity, self-discovery, entrepreneurship, hard-earned lessons, and so much more. Chase sits down with the world's top creators, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders and unpacks actionable, valuable insights to help you live your dreams in career, hobby, and life.
ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
Your thoughts aren’t something you have, they’re something you hone. It’s a double-edged sword; optimistic, enthusiastic thinking compounds over time to create amazing things, while a multitude of mental woes can dampen our willingness to go bigger. Jon Acuff, author of Soundtracks: the surprising solution to overthinking, and one of my favorite speakers, is here on the podcast to give us a lesson on how to address negative, repetitive thoughts to steer us towards our goals and dreams rather than away from them. It’s incredible what becomes possible when your mental energy is applied in the right direction.
If you’re not aware of Jon’s work, he is the New York Times bestselling author of seven books, including his most recent Wall Street Journal #1 bestseller, Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done. He’s an INC Magazine Top 100 Leadership speaker and has spoken to hundreds of thousands of people at conferences. I had the pleasure of seeing him on stage and he knocked me back with his unique blend of humor, honesty, and hope.
In this episode we get into:
- Being organized and detailed vs. overthinking
- How to be kind to yourself
- Trauma-related soundtracks
- Why writer’s block doesn’t exist
- Three critical skills needed for this decade
- and much more!
