Top 3 Things ALL Graduates Should Be Thinking About Right Now

Listen to the Podcast Congrats! You did it – you’re graduating! Big ups on all the hard work and long hours. But here’s the scary part. Graduation is the first day of the rest of your life. Last week by far the most popular question I saw in my social feed was around graduation. Either YOU were graduating, your friends or sons / daughters–and, naturally, there was a lot of concern. Generally you asked what I’d tell new graduates in a time like this … So that’s what today’s #chasejarvisRAW is all about. Whether you are a twenty-something just about to enter the job market or you know someone who is “graduating” to a new career, whether it’s photography or any other creative / entrepreneurial discipline … here are my TOP 3 THINGS GRADUATES NEED TO BE THINKING ABOUT. Thing 1: Be Great At Your Craft Learning doesn’t end when you’re no longer in the classroom. This might be seem like an obvious thing, yet so many people leave school and forget that they need to be great at their skill and instead get consumed by the myriad of OTHER things surrounding a career, such as building a website, getting […]

Why comparing yourself to others is the WORST (and BEST) thing you can do

Stop me if any of this sounds familiar: You’re lurking a peer’s social media account, and what started as a cursory browse quickly takes a detour down the rabbit hole of self-doubt and envy: “S/he is so much better at X or Y than I am – I’ll never catch up! Look at his/her amazing X or Y and s/he’s always hanging with X or Y celebrity and nobody even knows who I am – ugh, I should just quit and do something else, I’m just not cut out for this” – and so forth. If the above scenario rings painfully true for you, it’s because you’ve felt the power of something embedded deep in the semi-conscious, caveman part of our brains: a powerful engine for comparison – one that works with ruthless efficiency. Occasionally we have the wherewithal to AVOID that ruthless voice in our heads that doesn’t serve us – and it’s common knowledge that we’re doing ourselves a favor when we do so.  But – at the risk of taking an unpopular stance here, I believe that comparative thinking can be — in fact, MUST be — a part of any creative pro’s toolkit. What?!  Blasphemy!  Right […]

Tim Ferriss on Creativity, Simplicity and the Power of Audio

You know him, you love him, you’ve heard him here before… today’s podcast guest is A DEAR friend and a legend by any measure. It’s the one and only, Mr. Tim Ferriss!  Author of five #1 New York Times best sellers, including his most recent Tribe of Mentors, star of his own TV show The Tim Ferriss Experiment, and host of one of the most popular podcasts in the world, The Tim Ferriss Show which has over 300 million downloads to date. In today’s episode, we focus on Tim’s shift from writing as a central pillar of creation to a world where his podcast is central to most of the other media he creates (books, videos, blog posts etc). To say that this episode is “rich” with insight would be a dramatic understatement. In this episode we tear into… – WHO are his epic guests, how does he choose and land them? – WHY is he focused on his podcast? There’s some really good reasons… – HOW he does it…exactly what’s his workflow and key equipment – WHEN / where and all the rest of it 😉 Tim also has mastered the ability to set a goal and break it down […]

Stop Trying To Get Everyone To Like Your Work

When I talk to photographers and survey the industry landscape, I see a zillion photographers trying to have all their work liked by all the people. This comes from our social animal DNA, but it’s the completely wrong approach to success – …
