So you want to be more creative, in art, in business, whatever. Here are some tips that have worked for me over the years.
1. Ignore everybody.
2. The idea doesn't have to be big. It just has to be yours.
3. Put the hours in.
6. Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten.
7. Keep your day job.
11. Don't try to stand out from the crowd; avoid crowds altogether.
12. If you accept the pain, it cannot hurt you.
13. Never compare your inside with somebody else's outside.
21. Selling out is harder than it looks.
22. Nobody cares. Do it for yourself.
24. Don't worry about finding inspiration. It comes eventually.
27. The best way to get approval is not to need it.
28. Power is never given. Power is taken.
30. The hardest part of being creative is getting used to it.
34. Beware of turning hobbies into jobs.
37. Meaning Scales, People Don't.
37. When your dreams become reality, they are no longer your dreams.
Gone are the days when letters were written to friends and relatives to remain in touch – text has taken that responsibility.
Love is no longer communicated thru perfumed, painfully handwritten calligraphic letters – facebook, online dating sites etc are enough.
‘Mate’ and ‘Cheers’ defines the entire spectrum of salutation and politeness even in this country where English language has some momentous roots.
And I strongly feel that…human race today is neither ‘very faithful’ nor ‘very sincere’.
We write letters because we expect something in return.
Why not do away with the false pretence?
Let’s stick to ‘very anticipatingly yours’!!
