Podcast: Your Instincts Are Killing Your Creativity (with Adam Hansen)

by | The Accidental Creative

Your human instincts are fine-tuned for survival, not innovation. This is handy when you’re escaping a lion in the wild, but not so great when you need to come up with an amazing new idea for that client project you’re working on. On today’s episode, Adam Hansen shares a few insights for how to overcome those baked-in instincts with tips from his book Outsmart Your Instincts.
