Our discussion with Michaell Magrutsche transitions into the area of work balance and whether more productivity really leads to more happiness. The whole concept of working faster and better does not seem to be leading us to worthy results. We are not seeing vast amounts of free time and instead often are chained to our desk of phone. The promise of freedom has become more chains.

Return To The Focus Of Work Balance

That is where we have to go back to square one and look at the “why” of our systems and solutions.  There should be a reason for every system and it should help the humans on the other end. We can not simply build solutions that are faster or cleaner or even easier to use if they do not help humans. The focus must be on moving the ball forward in the attempt to allow humans more time to be human and not just a faster cog in the machine.

About Michaell

He is an Austrian-Californian multimedia Artist. During his journey, he became a creativity-awareness educator through experience-based outside-the-box upbringing that he was forced into by his neurodiversity.

He is a self-taught, author of 5 books, podcaster, speaker, guide, former Newport Beach CA Arts-Commissioner and co-produced with Robert Evans. Fluent in German and English.

His ability is seeing hidden contexts which allows him to resolve paradoxes and arrive at awareness solutions in leadership, hospitality, customer service, communication, success vs. fulfillment and any form of creativity and culture.

He separates each problem/solution in human and system relevancy, which allows all participants/host/listeners to become aware and align needs. Without creativity there are no man-made systems, there would be no world as we know it.

He discovers patterns within art/creativity that foster creative communication and identify art-values outside of any art-product. This perspective of looking at creativity this way brings humanity together, shows its limitlessness and raises our human potential.

He discovered that there are three inherent human-superpowers that we all should be aware of:

  • Creativity
  • Healthy Dialogue
  • Adaptability

All systems need to be adapted to this strategy because without humans there is no need for systems. Humans and living beings and nature must be THE PRIORITY to keep raising OUR human potential instead of wasting our lifeforce with man-made systems (therein lies heaven on earth.)

Listen to his 30 second podcast THE SMART OF ART – The Power of Art and Creativity, where he provides conversations about this limitless superpower.
