As is demonstrated in this inspirationally fueling speech, Jonah Lehrer has a profound understanding of the relationship between science and human behavior. As an expert in the field of neuroscience and psychology, Lehrer’s inspirationally fueling speech takes on the topic of where creativity comes from and how to achieve it.
As one of the problems that creative minds often have and creative jobs often look to overcome, creativity can be a double-edged sword that hits at unreasonable times and inconvenient moments rather than when you’re looking for it. The point of Lehrer’s speech actually revolves around how creativity will hit when you’re not looking for it. Rather than devoting your time to be inspired, if you are absent-minded, you might find yourself actually coming up with a fantastic idea, but you have to then be ready to put in the effort necessary to take it to the next level.
