If you are looking for a creative outlet and have some fun at the same time, you’ll enjoy this discussion with Grant Crowell, author of the book, Grantasms. The book has hundreds of made up words created by the author to describe all kinds of people, situations and other things that might bother us, make us happy or, need a more accurate description.
What is a nononoshow? What’s a social beef? And are you a gerk?
ADHD or not, you’ll have a laugh and maybe learn a few things about yourself in this podcast and figure out that there is a word for everything!
Grant talks about the inspiration he had in writing the book and the creative efforts it took to build a library of word to describe some of our everyday situations. He uses many in our discussion, (like they were our first language…) and he goes through some of his favorite Grantasms.
He speaks about how creating and using these words, he has been able to interrupt many negative patterns in his brain and clear a path to creativity and focus.
Grant also speaks about his rewarding work at Dell Technologies and how he has the chance to work with all types of individuals and all kinds of brains.
Grant offers his advice for his advice for those of us who may be distracted for a better experience in the workplace and he speaks about the acceptance of those with different brains in the corporate world as well as what many have to offer an organization.
And we have fun! Which is most important.
