Andy and Cat.

Mar 19, 2021

In this episode, Andy starts out by talking about a movie where a lone survivor Navy SEAL in Afghanistan was given help, protection, and sanctuary by the locals. He compares it with how we should protect our creative ideas and thoughts from our own self-criticism. 

Listen in now and learn how to provide a safe sanctuary for your good ideas and thoughts and protect your creativity from your own ego.


“We're Trying To Protect Ourselves From That Outside Criticism, But We Want To Make Sure That We Don't Kill Off And Suffocate Really Good Ideas Because Of That Fear.”

“Some Of The Craziest Ideas You'll Hear Are Sometimes The Most Brilliant When You Just Let It Sit And Simmer.”
