george lois and the cowardly lion on ‘courage’

CreativeMornings Short: George Lois on Courage from CreativeMornings on Vimeo.

(Video link here.) In this short, great clip from design legend George LoisCreativeMornings talk, he gives what he considers to be his most essential piece of advice for creatives — for anyone — : “be courageous!“.

They even look alike! The message from both: how essential courage is to living, feeling vital, DOING things.
