How to Avoid the Number One Killer of Dreams
with Dushan Nikolovski
Assistant Clinical professor, Purdue University Northwest
As children, we are told that we can do anything and become anyone. Our limits are only set by our imagination. Yet, once we enter the school system, our creativity is replaced by conformity and most spend a lifetime trying to regain the artist within. It is however possible to reclaim your spark, discovery what drives you, create work that makes you happy and live the life you want.
