Pandemic constraints, meditation, and the magic of the first idea.

I spoke with my good friend and fellow professional creative Antonio Marcato (Creative Strategist @ Facebook) about a few themes involving creativity.

His perspective on the relationship between meditation and creativity was really a great lesson!

Here's what we talked about:

- Creativity in uncertain times and how constraints force us to be more creative
- Meditation and how it helps the mind in our creative efforts
- How your first idea is special, and should not go to the trash
- Risk and reward in brand communication

Definitely worth the time. Enjoy, and let us know what you thought.
