WHAT IS THE ONE THING THAT YOU DO, THAT HELPS YOU BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE?
I think strategic creativity has helped me the most out of any other trait. I’m not even sure if that’s a thing or I just made it up, haha, but I think both those elements together are essential because creativity without strategy can become aimless and the strategy element has really helped me kick goals.
One of the main things that’s important when you are trying to achieve something is being able to overcome obstacles because nothing good ever comes easy. I think I’ve been able to not only overcome, but also turn my challenges into wins by putting 200% into being creative.
For instance: if we get hate on one of our music events on social media – instead of deleting comments or freaking out and seeing it as a loss, we take the hate and make a funny video about it!
This allows us to flip the script on the haters and use the negativity to market the event while making everyone laugh (and having a laugh at ourselves too).
Strategic creativeness has also helped me see everything I do through a different lens. I strive to stay away from copying what others are doing, if I see a trend I usually try not to buy into it unless it’s really my style.
For DJ sets I make mostly my own edits instead of playing other people’s stuff because I want my set to sound unique and not the same as everyone else. I try to creatively and consistently put my own personality into everything I do.
If you come at every problem with a strategic and creative solution you are not only going to take less L’s, you are going to have more fun and be more unique which are both important in almost any career!
