5by5 - The Cocktail Napkin #49: A Love Affair With Failure
Tagged with “ideas” (4)
[From July, 2010]
"Merlin Mann and I cover a lot of territory, from creative failure to creative modality and how being in the wrong mode at the wrong time might bring on that failure."
Jeremy talks with video producer Michelle Vargas about giving good advice to 15 year-olds, putting good stuff into the world to get good stuff back, mentorship and setting up a video playhouse for the purpose of acting in the moment.
Colin Marshall talks to Merlin Mann, thinker, writer, and speaker on time, attention, and creative work. Following up on his June 2009 visit, he’s back on the show to talk about a great many things, not least his new podcast Back to Work with Dan Benjamin, a program about productivity, communication, barriers, constraints, tools — and, nearly always, fear. The conversation also ventures into other, unusually personal topics, including dealing with entrepreneurs, trying not to hate the internet, and having one hundred dollars in the bank.
