    A call to action for artists and business people of all types to create the work that only they can create which makes them irreplaceable and also Unmistakable When you're the only person who could have created a work of art the competition and standard metrics by which things are measured become irrelevant because nothing can replace you The factors that distinguish you are so personal that nobody can replicate them pg 2 That makes sense to me You're essentially writing the book so no one can tell you how it's supposed to goThe theory of becoming Unmistakable is fairly simple but the journey to that place is not There are no maps to this realm because it is different for everyone and the paths to that place vary as widely as the talents that people bring with them As Srinivas reminds us Unmistakable work is a process of self discovery We start our ride not knowing what it is that makes us unmistakable and a thread reveals itself through the creation of a body of work Dots connect patterns emerge and our unmistakable gift is revealed Time is the critical ingredient reuired for this to take place hence the role of longevity and commitment in the uest to become unmistakable pgs 56 57 So you can't give up Create and fail and try again That is as hard and as easy as it is creating unmistakable work might be one of the hardest things to do you have to look into the depths of who you are explore what matters to you and infuse that into every element of your work until it can't possibly be mistaken for something anybody could have done but you pg 68 The messages contained within Unmistakable become repetitive after a few chapters but Srinivas threads some of the stories and artists from his podcast to break up the material as well as his personal testimony Unmistakable encourages creation even in areas that you may have no prior experience Lack of formal instruction might keep us from attempting some sort of creative pursuit or starting anything in which we don't have experience When we lack experience we also have the advantage of lacking preconceived notions of what's possible pg 113 And you don't know what you're capable of until you get started So what are we waiting for As Srinivas writes from an interview with Seth Godin The enemy of creativity is fear; that seems pretty clear The enemy of fear is creativity; that doesn't seem that obvious The antidote to our fear is to put our heads down do our work and make something each day pg 189 Let's all become UnmistakableSome further reading Creativity The Perfect Crime Do the Work and How to Fly a Horse The Secret History of Creation Invention and Discovery

    One of my students gave me this book during our second class I'm not sure why he didn't know me yet or anything about me And yet it feels like he didI've laid everything on the line to pursue my dream of being a full time novelist A lot of people think that's crazy but the guy who wrote this book not only understands he's lived it While the surfing analogies didn't speak to me as I'm not a surfer much of what he said was encouraging and affirming Keep following the path that only you can follow Not everyone will like it but those who need to find you willWhile nothing in this book is overly startling or revolutionary everyone who's ready to or already has risk all to pursue their dreams will find it comforting I'm glad I read it and I'm glad my student gave it to me when he did

    Short punchy book drawing a lot of analogies relating doing good stuff to surfing Following up on the examples cited was niceThe antidote to the voice of fear is to put your work out into the world little by little day by day until you can live with the voice while also ignoring it You overcome resistance drip by drip with seemingly small accomplishments one at a time until you find a capacity to dare a bit Treat validation as one of the environments you live in Realistically we all need validation so instead of searching for it everywhere or from people you know you can't get enough of it from be deliberate Have a select group of cheerleadersOur evaluations of the conditions can sometimes be misleading because conditions are always changingHaving a long term view is a founder's greatest competitive advantage because so few others have oneMany so called best practices would be honest if the following disclaimer preceded them This is what we did This is what happened We've turned them into some principles They might work for you They might notMake sure you know why these practices were done in the matter they were carried outIf you have your life mapped out in exact detail where's the room for serendipity in that?Rather than seeing your resources as limited if we start with the uestion what can we do with what we've got? the set of possible solutions to any problem we're trying to solve immediately expandsOften our fear is a signal that what's on the other side is bliss and miracles start to occur only when we attempt to do those things that scare usUncertainty is a form of limitlessness Not knowing what might happen opens up a world of possibilitiesEveryday we have creative impulses moments that could make our work unmistakable They are moments in which we feel deeply compelled to make something simply because we want to see it exist But we're uick to write off such moments as silly But it is exactly in these moments that the biggest breakthroughs occurWe'll freuently choose to tolerate the unfulfilling over the uncomfortable And we do so at a very high price the cost of our joy and self expressionLife is a series of false horizons On the path to mastery nearly every external marker of success is a false horizonThe rough edges are where your most unmistakable elements lieTry a thirty day project that has nothing to do with your work The only goal is progress be slightly better than you were before you startedOur cultural lack of encouragement for psychological health is one of the primary sources of our own unhappiness dissatisfaction and deepest inner sufferingWe must have the grit to persistently do hard things that have no immediate payoffYour temporary circumstances don't have to become your permanent identityIf all we do is try to avoid being wrong we'll never be able to do work that is unmistakable

    375What does it mean to be unmistakable? And how do you produce work that is unmistakable?Based on his successful podcast “The Unmistakable Creative” Srinivas Rao puts his spin on the over saturated market of how to succeed at being a creative entrepreneur to paper in his latest Unmistakable Why Only is Better Than BestWhile I listen to than my fair share of podcasts in the area of creative inspiration I’m not a fan of Rao’s podcast Frankly it’s a little too bro for me Which is fine Bros need their inspirational podcasts too I like Rao much better in book form He focuses what he has learned from interviewing successful creatives around a surfing analogy Turning that into a book is no easy feat and I give him propos for doing so And while there’s certainly some repetition in his advice most of the guidance for aspiring creatives can be boiled down to this – just do it More and I think being unmistakable simply means staying in the game for the long haul As a photographer I just need to keep on keeping on Put your work out there see what resonates with people try out ways to monetize it and repeat And repeat And repeat even if nobody shows up to your show or buys your product Try again And again And again Because one thing is certain if you're not putting work out there you'll never have a chance to succeed And now anybody want to buy one of my prints?

    This book is preachy and repetitive so much so that you will feel like you're reading the same chapter over and over The I read books of this nature the convinced I am that acclaimed authors such as Seth Godin Hugh MacLeod et al operate within the realm of a links exchange orgy I mention you in my book and you mention me in yours Eventually they become enclosed in an echo chamber and their reputation precedes themselvesTake for example a glaring contradiction on the piece about Seth Godin The author states that one of the reasons that Seth has intentionally chosen not to have comments on his blog is because hearing negative feedback from anonymous people who I have no connection with will cause me to do nothing but hideYet in the conclusion of the piece Seth defines unmistakable this way The path to become unmistakable is the willingness to be wrong to be criticized and most of all to matter
