Perfection inhibits starting to create

Erin Rose Dance says:

Erik and Lewis, great interview. As a dancer, what can I do if my full time job is stressing me out and draining me so much that I don’t have the energy to put towards my art?

Ivy Williams says:

“Fascination is greater than perfection.” Wow.

47:01 Keep the day job. SO relevant in artistic professions. Love this interview, so powerful. This conversation reminds me a lot of Blue Ocean Theory meets Mastery meets Big Magic. Thanks Lewis and Erik! <3

Asghaab Job says:

Hi Lewis. Another awesome interview. Even as a coach and trainer I could take from this interview.

Van lee says:

I have an out of the topic question. The camera angles were better in 2015 (better looking room for Lewis and the guest, and set at eye sight level) than the angles your cameras are at right now. Better camera angles mean better tools co connect with audiences. Just noticed and wondering why…

Anna Bernfeld says:

Great interview.

Ben Lerman says:

I had a phenomenal art teacher in High School. My favorite quote of his: “Art has two components, soul and technique. All technique and no soul is boring, all soul and no technique is incomprehensible. Great art has a balance of both.” Awesome Interview Lewis!!!!
