Mimi Knowles – Better (Official Music Video)

May’s theme is COMMITMENT
A commitment is a promise to show up whether you’re having a good or bad day.

It’s a behavior and mindset that signifies the posture of a professional. It’s about saying yes with your whole heart.

A creative life is built on the commitments you make to projects and people. It can feel like a leap of faith. But is that not the very essence of leading a creative life?

This month’s global exploration of Commitment was chosen by our Vienna chapter and illustrated by Florine Glück. Thank you to our global partners MailChimpAdobe, and WordPress.com for their ongoing support of the CreativeMornings community.
