Jason Vincion: better living through creativity


Home | Now | About | Music | Media | Links


What I'm About

•  Developing creativity in ways I care to.

•  Putting creativity forward in genuine ways.

•  Enjoying the creative works of others.

•  Keeping things simple (thus, the website).

•  Cleaning up an abundance of old messes.

•  Putting the unnecessary behind me.

•  Learning from mistakes to not repeat them.


Influences

•  Steve Pavlina - had it not been for his
10 Reasons You Should Never Get a Job blog
post, I likely wouldn't have started down the
roads to investing, passive income, and
personal development.

•  Derek Sivers - along with being the person
I sought help from to digitally distribute my
Natthimmel album (among others), he's also
a very insightful and creative person that has
inspired me to continue to strip away all the
unnecessary and focus on what's important.

•  Leo Babauta - both his Zen Habits and
mnmlist sites have also inspired me to strip
my web presence down to the essentials
and focus on the content.

•  Glenn Morrissette - though his blog is no
longer, To Simplify inspired me to want to be
a nomad and travel the country in an RV.
While that path didn't pan out and I took a
different road (hello brewing), the lesson of
living light and lean stuck with me.

•  Jacob Lund Fisker - a brilliant man who's
been able to distill expenses down to their
minimum, live off residual income from
investments, and spend his days doing
whatever inspires him.

•  Osho - though controversial in some circles
(mostly from the actions of his followers),
he has inspired me to look at reality from
different perspectives and see that many
things people get wound up about are not
worth giving energy to (especially politics).

•  Devin Townsend - though I've been a fan of
Strapping Young Lad for years, I've recently
(November 2018) dug into his self-titled
works and have been totally floored. Devin's
taught me to follow my muse, no matter
where it takes me. Also, this interview
with Devin has been pivotal in helping me
understand how to overcome issues in my
personal relationships that I've had recently.
I also read his book "Only Half There" and
his book on creativity, which gave me many
insights to his creativity, as well as my own.
