Welcome to the 154th episode of the award-winning Diverse Minds podcast. This month’s theme is all about the arts and mental health. So, in today’s episode, I review the book Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert.

On today’s show

  • Why I decided to review the book, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert. [01:12]
  • A key part of this book. [02:01]
  • Some of the key themes that I picked up within the book. [03:56]
  • Why I do a podcast instead of writing a blog. [09:42]
  • Some of the pitfalls of the book. [11:40]


  • We often forget that we are all creative beings, which is one of the tenants of this book.
  • It's not about creating masterpieces. It's not about how to be the next big thing. It's not about how to monetize your creativity, but it's about the process.
  • Fear keeps you rooted in inaction.
  • We don't always have families that support us and champion us.
  • There's no such thing as the greatest and the worst because of subjectivity and perspective.
