Creative Calling: Establish a Daily Practice, Infuse Your World with Meaning, and Succeed in Work + Life – Chase Jarvis
"Life isn’t about finding fulfillment and success; it is about creating it."
Creativity is a force inside every person that, when unleashed, transforms our lives and delivers vitality to everything we do. Establishing a creative practice is our most valuable and urgent task, as important to our well-being as exercise or nutrition. In Creative Calling, Chase Jarvis taps into the power of creativity to shape our lives. As Jarvis explains, creativity isn't a skill, it is a habit available to everyone, and through small, daily actions, we can supercharge our innate creativity. He provides a powerful framework called the IDEA framework that can help you bring your creativity to life: Imagine your big dream, Design a daily practice that supports your dream, Execute on your ambitious plans, and Amplify your impact through community.
