In this episode:

You will hear about…

  • Billy shares his thoughts on where creativity comes from.
  • Does creativity ever tire for Billy?
  • With advancements in technology are we better off nowadays or was there more of a hotbed of creativity in the past?
  • The importance of taking notes to capture creativity that would be fleeting if not captured somehow.

Why you should listen:

Creativity is a deep subject and it is one that I enjoy exploring with my guests. In particular, to hear testimony of an incredible musician stating that his creativity never ceases to exist is inspiring to hear. I wondered if there ever comes a point where you run out of ideas.
