Are you feeling stuck or in need of a fresh perspective?

If so, you’re not alone. Everyone experiences creative droughts from time to time. One of the most effective ways to reignite your inspiration is by diving into the works of those who saw the world through a unique lens. One such individual was the renowned writer, chef, and travel documentarian Anthony Bourdain. Bourdain’s insights and worldview continue to inspire and resonate with people worldwide, even after his tragic passing in 2018. 

As you navigate your own creative journey, I encourage you to take a moment to explore Bourdain’s thought-provoking writings. You may just find the inspiration you’ve been seeking.

In addition to his thirteen published books, Bourdain was also an avid blogger. 

Here are some links to his blogs:

In his own words, Bourdain said:

“If we fail — we want to fail outrageously, foolishly, gloriously — giving it everything we’ve got in the cause of making something new and strange and hopefully, awesome.”

The takeaway? Don’t be afraid to take risks and experiment. The worst that can happen is that you fail. But even in outrageous, foolish, glorious failure, you can learn and grow.
