How to make a name for yourself

Being good isn’t enough, you need a network

In his decades-long study of creativity, management psychology expert Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi described what he called a “systems approach.” Since "creative" work tends to be subjective, he posited a model that included three systems:


Master your craft


Get your work in front of people who are seen as authorities in the field.


You and your work must be deemed of value by the gatekeepers.

Communities create opportunities for creative work to succeed.

Don’t be lucky, be connected.

Start today.

In doing so, you will find access, and connection, and friendship that will be a strength to you for your entire career and entire life.
