Don’t Forget Your Fortune

I collaborated on a music video today and then we went to eat Chinese food. I’m a little drunk so, I hope I don’t forget my fortune. ***See yesterday’s post on Taoism & Creative Management***  

Taoism and Creativity

“Hold on loosely But don’t let go If you cling to tightly You’re gonna lose control” -38 special I’m not that into 80s music, but I’m very into Taoism as a creative management style. We want our creative visions to manifest exactly as we imagine, but the world is filled with variables outside of our…
