Question 16 // Wait, you can be creative AND have your shit together? Pt.2 (feat. Matt Patrick)
Matt Patrick (@librarystudio) is a record producer, studio owner, engineer, singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. I’ve had the honor of working with Matt multiple times over the years and every time I do, I feel like I’ve left the session feeling like not just a better musician but also a wiser human. In order to share with you as much as possible from our conversation, I’ve decided to share it in two parts. I always say that if you can get past the WHAT someone does, to find out WHO they are and WHY they do it, there is wisdom that anyone can connect with. That said, Matt’s musical insight is so interesting that I know there are people that would like to hear more on that too so we dive even deeper into music next week.
Part 2 or our conversation ended up being a little bit more creativity and music focused. In our second and final part, we talk about:
-The importance of a balanced life
-How daily rituals can BENEFIT our creativity
-Learning when to take a break instead of trying to ‘push through’ (I freakin love Matt’s ‘Round Peg, Square Hole’ concept)
- “Thin Slicing”
- Masha and the bear (on ice) <- what???
Quotes from Matt in this interview that stood out to me:
“I don’t want to learn somebody elses’ magic, I want to create my own”
“True creatives are always waiting for people to figure out what we actually believe about ourseves.”
-the need to be present in the moment

I’m so thankful that I don’t have to deal with sponsors.
Otherwise, I would have to tell you to visit Guinness’ website HERE Otherwise, I’d be inclined to tell you that Guinness Draft (with it’s distinctive dark amber body and rich creamy head) is possibly God’s greatest gift to mankind and is the sole reason I’m thankful for being alive after it’s birth in 1759.
I’d also have to recommend that you to hire Narrate Films for your next video/film/music-video/photo booth/wedding photography/any photography needs and to visit their website HERE. Hell… they took the photos for this podcast and they turned out pretty bad ass if you ask me.
