Todd Henry is an author, a speaker, a blogger, a podcaster and an inspiration in the creative community. His topic of expertise is creativity, productivity, and leadership.

His books include:

  • The Accidental Creative: How to Be Brilliant at a Moment's Notice (2011)
  • Die Empty: Unleash Your Best Work Every Day (2013)
  • Louder than Words: Harness the Power of Your Authentic Voice ( 2015 )
  • Herding Tigers: Be the Leader That Creative People Need

Highlights from the interview

  • Creativity is problem-solving, which is not the same as creating art.
  • Don't wait for inspiration to come to start doing creative work. Start doing the work, and let creativity come when it comes.
  • Be conscious of the inputs in your life, inputs like food, friends, information, entertainment, education. If you sit around and drink beer all day long, that's not a great input. If you read, spend time with positive-minded friends, and eat a healthy diet, then you are putting the good stuff into your body and mind.
