We’re back with another episode of The Art of Humanity!

Season 4 focuses on empowering the next paradigm of creativity.

Today’s guest is someone who aligns with my mission for productivity and creativity: Srini Rao.

Srini is the host and founder of The Unmistakable Creative podcast where he’s conducted over 600 interviews with thought leaders and people from all walks of life. He’s the author of three books: the Wall Street Journal bestseller The Art of Being Unmistakable, Unmistakable: Why Only is Better than Best, and his most recent book An Audience of One: Reclaiming Creativity for Its Own Sake.  

His work has been featured in the New York Times, Forbes, Inc, Business Insider, and The Blaze.

Srini and I discuss why getting fired was helpful to his career, why creativity without a purpose is valuable, and how he cultivates a commitment to mastery. 

In Srini’s latest book, An Audience of Onehe makes the case for why creating for your own pleasure is essential to a creative and meaningful life.

“There’s a commitment to craft that’s lost when we have instant validation.” – @srinirao

We also cover:

  • What to do when you get fired
  • Vulnerability hangovers
  • Why creativity without a purpose is valuable
  • Why quantity is the predecessor to quality
  • How to work with focus

I’m so excited to share this interview with you.

Let’s go to the show!
