Why Curiosity Drives Creativity And Truth For Timothy Palmer (Part 2 of Podcast Conversation)

diy artist route podcast timothy palmer curiosityIn the 2nd part of our conversation with indie musician Timothy Palmer, we pick up where we left off in this previous episode of The DIY Artist Route Podcast. Curiosity and questions are the driving force behind some of the best creations on earth.

What drives the curiosity engine?

Learn how can you strengthen your curiosity to engage with your own ingenuity and creativity to produce your best and most engaging work.

When Timothy Palmer isn’t making great music he’s leading people in a quest for truth and introspection. It turns out that many of the answers we seek externally are found inside us through looking at our experiences and the teachers who have imprinted their brilliance on us.

This conversation is an exploration of these elements so that you will take the proactive steps to become more curious about yourself, your relationships, your journey, and the work you produce.

One of the key elements that comes up in every conversation I have with Tim is the depth of questions we ask each other. It’s what Tim says inside this conversation when he says, “Especially in the United States, we can’t get away from the questions of morality, ethics, politics, or religion. Because even if we are not interested in that, everyone else around us is.”

Which is a fascinating truth. I don’t consider myself to be one who spends much time in politics. Actually I avoid political discourse a lot because of the argumentative nature it has become. As you know, I’m all about harmony, unity, and bringing people together. But Tim makes some incredible points in this discussion that pertains to this subject because avoiding the discussions that people are having is not a way to bring harmony.

What do you think?

There are several places in this episode where we ask you to join into the discussion and you can do that through connecting with both Tim and I on social media. We’d love to hear your thoughts. Here’s how you can engage with Timothy Palmer to let your voice be heard, ask questions, make comments, and even challenge what we discuss.

Aside from the in-depth discussion on the power of curiosity, we also dive into areas of discussion involving protestation on the basis of fear, people need to know who you are and love is what makes you known.

And we close with a little chit chat on the power of tattoos. Both Tim and I have adorned our bodies with art that represents who we are and what we’re all about. Which is another way I’d love to invite you to connect with us. Share your tattoo stories (and pics if you have them) in the comments below or through social media. Hit me up on Twitter, Facebook, and Linked In.

Share this episode to bring more people into the discussion. I look forward to talking more with you soon!

Timothy Palmer Shares Philosophy Of Creativity & Love On DIY Artist Route

You’ve heard his music, even if you think you haven’t. Timothy Palmer has been Tryin‘ to help you us all navigate the journey of the creative entrepreneur and musician for years. His song (by that same name, Tryin’) is the theme song to the DIY Artist Route Podcast, a brilliant track found on the critically acclaimed Half Boy EP.

On top of being a brilliant songwriter, he’s also one of my closest friends. Every time we have a conversation, he shares so much incredible wisdom and philosophy that I wish I had been recording it to share with you.

This is the fulfillment of that dream for us to talk openly about our stories, and the pursuit you share with us in taking our creative work to new levels of success.

Tim is an avid reader, which you hear in his quotations of great writers, musicians and sages in this conversation. It’s his uncanny ability to relate story with philosophy and real life perspective that make him such an incredible leader and speaker.

This is the first in a two-part episode where we dive deep into the philosophy of being human, in particular creative people who want to make a difference in the world. I know that’s your mission and passion, otherwise you wouldn’t be here.

In the interest of time, I’ve split our conversation up into two parts. This first portion serves as both an introduction to him and his work, as well as lay a solid foundation for the role that philosophy plays in how each of us see ourselves, our role in the world, and the work that we do individually and collectively. The collective part is where you join in too. And I invite you to join into the discussion we have here.

Here’s where you can connect with Timothy to share your perspectives, stories, and ask questions:
