I Dare You To Move

Creatives are prone to loneliness. We spend time inside our own head thinking and making, and it’s hard to remember sometimes that there’s a whole world out there. Out there, with people who need help. With people who need what you’re making. Also, because we work alone, we’re prone to fear. It’s easy to hide in a group but to stand up as an individual and say “This is what I believe.” That is scary.

Last night I was driving listening to Spotify when I heard a song I hadn’t heard in awhile. It’s a song about meaning. It’s a song about standing up.

Dare You To Move by Switchfoot

Here’s a taste if you haven’t heard it;

Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone’s here
Everyone’s here
Everybody’s watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next
What happens next

I dare you to move


  • Tom Schaber - You might get a slight giggle out of this. I passed the lyrics along to one of my salespeople who seemed to not want to make sales calls outside the office. Amazing how fast he scrambled to get out of sight.ReplyCancel

  • Fragments of Light - Thank you so much for your encouragement in the creative life! I want to thank you with every post, but that would become tedious and boring to read. 🙂 So, just know that your work is making a daily impact!ReplyCancel

    • Chris Creed - Wow. Thank you so much! I’m honored that you’re reading 🙂ReplyCancel

  • - This is excellent Chris, and I totally agree. We creatives tend to get up inside our own head so much of the time that it’s easy to forget that there IS a whole world out there full of people who need us, and who we need as well. I’m taking the dare to move in the next couple of days. Thanks so much, as always, for your brilliant inspirational posts!ReplyCancel

    • Chris Creed - Thanks Lauren! I’m excited for you!ReplyCancel
