The current issue of Fast Company magazine (on stands now) features an amazing centerpiece on “How to Live a Creative Life.” The article begins with a fascinating interview with Martin Scorsese, and his ability to, basically, do what fulfills him, and make incredible, personal films with Hollywood’s money. “The director has achieved the trifecta of a fulfilling, creative life: enough money to do only what truly interests him, enough freedom to attack those projects in a way that is satisfying, and enough appreciation from his peers to tame–just slightly, just ever so slightly–the neurotic beast of self-doubt.”
Equally interesting are the various breakout boxes and b-sides, including this awesome flow chart on How to Live a Creative Life, designed by ManMade faves, PopChartLabs. The infographic is a playful, “complete guide to making your inner genius your greatest on-the-job asset,” and features practical advice, ideas and inspiration, as well as coping tips for dealing with the struggles of living creatively.
It’s good stuff, and certainly worth a walk through, and the whole piece, from Scorsese to the fascinating look at how advertising and entertainment are merge into one collaborative field.
