We have to solve problems you have to create value for our clients, and we're often treated as if creativity is just a machine as if you know, we just kind of enter into the process in voila, brilliant, work pops out on the other side. But we all know that there are some unique dynamics and pressures and other kinds of forces. We have to encounter in the midst of doing our works here on the show. We talk about some of those forces and how we can push through them and counter them. So that we can make sure that we're putting our best work into the world every day. So. One of my favorite projects. I get to work on is something I called the leader list. Which is a weekly Email that goes out, the thousands of people. It's basically just a quick leadership tip something to help you be a better leader of creative people, and basically it'd be a better human being and on this week's episode. The one feature an Email that I recently sent to the leader list because it really captures some of what I've been thinking about lately as it relates to the body of work that we're building creative prose and also how the measure our effectiveness. I mean, what are we really trying to do in the grand scheme of things. So I'm going to share that content with you that information with you here in just a minute. And we're going to die before we do want to let you know. Today's episode is brought to you by fresh books. So in my new book hurting Tigers. I talk about five popular myths about creative people and one of those myths is that creative people lack business acumen. This drives me crazy because of the so untrue. And it's so unfair the truth is that creative people can be extremely business savvy. They just happen to solve problems. Than many other people. They think more circuitously about problems often rather than sequentially or they're able to think more systemically or or pull more dots. In to connect to help solve the problem. Well, nobody understands this more than fresh books. The proof is in the millions of creative prose who've turned to fresh books. Cloud accounting to help them conquer their Adleman and their paperwork. And by the way, I happen to be one of those creative. Prose the first instant started using fresh books.

Don't miss out on it. So anyway, so I was nine years old when my grandfather died, and I still remember the funeral not really understanding exactly what was happening. But knowing that I wasn't really gonna get the chance ever throw football with him to watch cartoons with him or to make something cool with him ever again. My grandpa. He taught me how the woodwork. He taught me how to do all kinds of things there's a very handy guy. And that's a tough concept for a nine year old to grasp never gonna see my grandpa again. So after the funeral we all filed into our cars for the procession to the cemetery. And it seemed like we're barely creeping along through the little town where I grew up around the corner of a hill to make our way to a small country church where he was going to be buried, and as we turn the corner I saw off in the distance some curious activity on the side of the road. It looked like a crowd had gathered to watch a parade. But it wasn't a holiday. So I was kind of confused and that the time it seemed like hundreds of people now, I realize is probably more like a few dozen. But as we neared the crowd, my parents had difficulty containing their emotion. And this that many of the people gathered on the side of the road had removed their hats, and we're holding their hats over their heart and others were simply standing at attention paying one final tribute to my grandfather after we pass the crowd asked my father who dad who were those people, and my father replied that was Pennington bakery. Son. On your grandpa worked there every day for thirty years. He was the hardest worker I've ever known. So my grandfather didn't have a college education, and when you graduated from high school in nineteen forty five he immediately enlisted in the navy, and he was sent to the Pacific upon returning. He married, my grandmother, and after a few other jobs he landed at Pennington bakery. And he wasn't formally trained isn't electrician. Yeah. The Cording to my father. He had wired the entire bakery. And he did many things that were make engineers scratch their heads in wonder and probably things that he couldn't get away with today. The magic. Imagine everyone who knew him would testify the he set the bar for excellence, he demanded a lot from others. And he demanded a lot from himself. He poured himself fully into whatever he was doing. Whether that meant his job is family, or is into your coach of many sports teams that he coached over the course of his life. I remember him picking me up and taking me to his junior high basketball practice when I was maybe like in the second grade, but he would take me and just kind of let me hang out and just shoot basketball and play with his team. And I just remember those kids loved him, even as he was ravaged with late stage cancer, he never complained as he joyfully helped me complete a woodworking project. And when about life is use a usual and his final concerns is expressed in my father were not about himself or the pain us experiencing, but about ensuring that his many outstanding commitments to others would be covered my grandfather's grave marker is a very simple one with no fancy epitaphs. If you have asked him what he wanted on this tombstone, he would laugh at you. Would would it be even cared? His legacy wasn't his work at the bakery. And it wasn't his service in the navy. And it wasn't any of the other things. He dedicated his life to my grandfather's legacy was people my children never met my grandfather yet in many ways, they see him daily. I was deeply shaped and informed by his patients, his work ethic. And his entrepreneurial drive, they see my grandfather. And me, I am part of his legacy. So what does this mean to us as creative professional's will leadership and legacy or not just what you do? But also how you do it. Your legacy will be determined by a series of choices you make over your life about how you spend this moment here. And now the challenging thing is that each moment feels like throwaway because another one follows closely on its heels how you choose to engage here. Now speaks more to your character. Then whatever residual stuff you leave in your trail rather than asking. What do I want on my tombstone, which is nothing but a cold dead piece of stone? I encourage you to ask yourself whose going to gather by the road just to catch a glimpse as my hearse passes by. Who will you impact? So deeply that they will continue your work, even after you're gone who will you challenge to up their game to be better than they are who will you irreversibly impact in your life. Who will you stand in the gap to defend that friends is the stuff that legacies are made of lasting legacies? We can't control how people think of us are think of our work when we're gone, but we can control the way we impact them today. We can control how we bring ourselves fully to what we do today. And we can commit ourselves to trying to be the kind of people in the credit, creative creative prose who don't get. So lost in the work that we forget about the people we're impacting through the work that we make the people are impacting through how we collaborate through. How we lead our clients through how pour ourselves into our communities into the people around us. It's easy to lose sight of the people in the. Midst of doing the work, but the people friends, the people we impact our legacy, and this is especially true for those of us who are leaders who have responsibility for others. You know in one hundred years people are probably going to forget that business that you're working in right now, they're definitely going to forget that very important project. You're working on right now, the one that you think is the most important thing you've ever done. People are going to forget that probably in five years, let alone in a hundred years, but the impact that you have on the people you lead on the people you interact with everyday those small interactions are going to continue to resounding for generations to come the person whose life you transform as a leader is going to impact other lives who are going to impact other lives, and that friends is your legacy. Your impact will echo for generations to come. So my encouragement very simply to you today. Is this be a leader? And be creative pro who makes echoes. That's what we're here to do. All right with love to hear your thoughts. Your feedback. Your comments about this interacted accidental creative dot is my Email address. You can reach me there or at accidental creative dot com.
