9780134078489: The Creative Fight: Create Your Best Work and Live the Life You Imagine

Creativity is not a gift for a select few, but an ongoing process of growth and self-realization available to anyone who puts in the effort to pursue the spark. In this book, Chris Orwig offers a unique perspective on the creative process, showing you how to find meaning in your work, be inspired, and discover the life for which you were designed.
 
With thoughtful and engaging chapters such as “Keep the Edges Wild,” “Einstein’s Game of Connect the Dots,” and “Grit and Glory,” Chris presents each concept through personal examples—his own and others’—showing how to live a more creative and meaningful life.
 
Drawn from his 12 years as a faculty member at the prestigious Brooks Institute as well as his experience leading creative inspiration and photography workshops and speaking on global stages, Chris’s stories are designed to teach you how to discover your own creative voice. Each chapter includes exercises to help you incorporate what you’ve learned and connect the topics directly to your own experience.

  • Features the friendly, approachable voice of Chris Orwig, whose photography, teaching, and speaking have inspired countless aspiring amateurs and professionals alike
  • Includes exercises in every chapter to help you put the concepts you learned into practice
  • Offers an elegant design filled with the author’s original photographs captured to visually support the ideas discussed in the book

"I've said it other places and I'll say it again... Chris Orwig's 'The Creative Fight' is absolutely brilliant. I have the book in my hands and am sincerely moved. A complete interrupter. It's a new standard in catalyzing creativity. I could not recommend this more highly." Dane Sanders
