I've been listening to a lot of the "Design matters with Debbie Millman" podcasts. I loved the talks with Chip Kidd, Louise Fili, and of course, Aaron Draplin. Scrolling through the list, there are a lot of names that sound familiar, but also a lot I've never heard.
On my drive home from work today I decided to play "Podcast Roulette". You know, Podcast Roulette... where you just mindlessly scroll up and down and up and down... and without looking... just randomly picked a story to listen to. (Don't you love how I talk about this like it's a normal thing to do?!) Well maybe it is... but today was the first time I tried it. I was like... oh I don't know... maybe I'll pick one that will be semi-applicable to my own life. I was letting fate tell me what I should be paying attention to. I was giving the Design Gods a chance to inspire me.
And they gave me this... Ms. Elle Luna and the power of choosing Must.
I'm not going to go into how this made me feel yet... I'm actually still marinating on some things... but the reason I HAD to post this now, was that I really think we all need to hear what Ms. Luna is saying RIGHT NOW.
If you're someone that's feeling a bit lost in your creative life; if you're someone that's trying to understand the difference between a job, a career, and a calling; if you're someone that feels that you've past the point in your life where you're allowed to follow your dreams; if you're someone just looking for genuine and thoughtful advice on living your passion... Elle Luna has something for you to hear.
While playing my game of "podcast roulette" I could have randomly clicked on any of the 250+ interviews that Debbie Millman has posted on her podcast. But there was a reason my little finger landed on this one. And you know what?! I'm excited. I'm excited for me... but also for you! Because for some reason, you landed on this blog post. Let's figure out what that reason is together! Let's go find our Musts!
