Ep18 - John Spencer: "Carve out time to do something creative"

Episode 18 is all about John Spencer. John is a Professor at George Fox University in Oregon. John has a simple goal - to make something everyday. Some days he makes things, other days he makes a difference, but on really good days he get to do both. John recently co authored a book entitled "LAUNCH: Using Design Thinking to Boost Creativity and Bring out the Maker in Every Student".

Listen to what John had to say about his current work as a Professor and what he does when he is not "working", the power of asking (a TED talk by Amanda Palmer), his work as a classroom teacher, his "making something" perspective (creative work), projects and the various stages they are in (revision and planning are his favourite), his book - LAUNCH (design thinking, launch cycle), his TEDx talk, his motivation/inspiration, what it's like to work with +Dave Burgess, and what he would tell people to help them become motivated/inspired ("find the outlet that makes you feel alive and then go do that").
