CIP076: Alex Pearson on What Makes Us Creative

Today I had the chance to talk to the lovely Alex Pearson, founder of one of the World’s Greatest Bookshops (as voted by Lonely Planet guides) and the Yurt Academy, here in Brighton.


We discuss:

  • How to define creativity
  • What makes us creative
  • Does having a lot of passions help creativity?
  • The myth of the left brain vs. right brain
  • How to get ‘unstuck’ creatively
  • How Alex started a bookshop in China
  • How to overcome fear in new creative projects
