“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” 

Albert Einstein

A Creative Manifesto For Authors
Creative Professionals Manifesto For Growth

As You Create, You Are Created

As you write your book, make your movie, paint your paintings– you are created. As you launch your innovative brand or your social enterprise, you are created.

The deeper you dig, the more you reveal. To others. To the world. To yourself. It’s all there in the work. Your pain. Your joy. The things you have to say. It’s all there …

So you follow the hidden forces that bring your ideas to life. It’s an odd dance. The discipline of a daily practice. Moments of inspiration. Doors opening and closing. Constant chaos. 

And then a spark. And the spark becomes a fire. And the fire becomes a book or a heartfelt brand; a piece of art or a feature film; a social justice movement or a Michelin Star restaurant.

The greatest advantage to having Bob in your life is that he calls bullshit on you in the kindest of ways when you get distracted from your path. Take a moment and think about the list of people in YOUR life that can offer you that clarity-and truly with your very best intentions at heart.

During a workshop Bob was teaching, he helped a woman with her elevator pitch. He kept challenging her to identify the “why” when she finally blurted out, ‘I give children a voice.’ It was a very moving and powerful moment. We all had goosebumps. That’s what it’s like to work with Bob Olmstead.
