Question 18 // What’s the key to happiness? (feat. Bruce Balgaard)

August 29, 2017

Bruce Balgaard is more than a musician and artist… he’s a visionary and mentor. I sat down for the first time with Bruce to find out why so many of the musicians I look up to, look up to him. The conversation that took place ended up being one of my most cherished experiences of doing this podcast so far and I’m excited to share it with you. 

In this conversation, we talk about:

-“Everything stands in the way of getting art done." -The fact that all artists that are good have some level of discontent -“Controlled Discontent” - Why Bruce has never practiced a day in his life - Depression - The ultimate defense against depression. Hint: “Kubb" - Bruce’s Definition of The key to happiness (being in the present moment) -What’s the difference between an introvert and an extrovert? (outgoing introverts) -“New areas of growth only come from some kind of conflict or difficulty." -Bruce and I discus being recovering people pleasers
