  • Don’t Borrow Money

financial control=creative control.

  • Listen…Carefully

by listening to other’s subtle details, ambitions, and desires in their speech you mold their world with your own. mutually beneficial.

  • Take field trips

the bandwidth of the world is much greater than that of any device.

  • Imitate

design is birthed through research. don’t be ashamed to borrow.

  • Scat

when your at a loss for words, make up something else, just not words.

  • Break it, Stretch it, Bend it, Crush it, Crack it, Fold it.
  • Explore the other side

trying using technology that’s considered old & outdated. use pen & paper instead of a QWERTY keyboard.

  • Coffee breaks, Cab rides, & Green rooms

sometimes growth/inspiration happens outside of where you thought it was intended to. the “waiting room.”

  • Avoid fields. Jump fences.

break free of boundaries when it comes to being creative. don’t allow them to have control over what is meant to be a manifold and dynamic process.

  • Repeat Yourself

if you like something, do it again, and again. if you don’t like something, do it again.

  • Forge your own Tools

tools amplify our capacities, so even a small tool can make a big difference. even simple tools that are your own can yield new avenues of understanding.

  • Stand on Someone’s Shoulders

you’ll go farther being carried on the accomplishments of others, plus it’s a better view ahead.

  • Avoid Software

everyone has it.

  • Don’t Clean Your Desk

you may find something in the morning you couldn’t see tonight.

  • Don’t Enter Award Competitions. You good.

they’re not good for you.

  • Read Only Left-Hand Pages

strange i know. Marshall McLuhan did this. cutting the amount of info we take in leaves room for what he called, “our noodle.”

  • Make New Words

Expand a lexicon, demand a new way of thinking by doing so. the new thoughts will demand a new form of expression. that expression demands new conditions. 💎

  • Think With Your Mind

forgot technology. don’t limit creativity to devices. 💎

  • Organization=Liberty

innovation in design happens in context. that context is usually some form of cooperatively managed expertise. the myth of a split between “creatives” and “suits” is what Leonard Cohen calls a “charming artifact of the past.”

  • Harvest Ideas

ideas need the space to be dynamic & fluid to flourish properly.

  • Keep Moving

don’t let the reinforcement you receive for your successes drive you. instead, allow failure & migration to.

  • Slow Down

you don’t need to operate according to “standard” time frames.

  • Don’t Be Cool

free yourself from the fear of how you’ll be perceived, just go.

  • Ask stupid Question’s

assess the answer, not the question. imagine learning as if you were an infant soaking up EVERYTHING they’re exposed to.

  • Collaborate

there’s always massive creative potential when you combine two different perspectives in any capacity.

  • __________________________

leave room for ideas that have yet to present themselves to you clearly. the ideas of others as well.

  • Stay Up Late

great things tend to happen when you push past the limits you thought had to stop at in your creative mind.

  • Work the Metaphor

look at what things stand for rather than what they actually are.

  • Be Careful to take Risks

the work you produce today will help shape your future, so nurture it as such.

  • Allow events to Change You

be willing to grow. growth is different than something that happens to you. you produce & live it yourself.

  • Forget about Good.

growth is not necessarily ‘good.’ growth is about exploration, if you stick to only what’s good you’ll never truly grow.

  • Process is more than Outcome

when the payoff or outcome drives the process you’ll never break new ground. when the process itself drives the outcome you’ll at least know you’ll actually want to be wherever you end up.

  • Love your Experiments

look at the big picture when it comes to trying new things, try to find fun in your failures.

  • Go DEEP

the deeper you go into anything the more likely you are to find something of value.

  • Capture/Log Accidents

you either win or you Learn something.

  • Study

use the necessity to produce as an excuse to study, it’ll prove to be beneficial either way.

  • Drift

allow yourself to get lost in your own thoughts as well as the world. lack judgement, postpone criticism.

  • Start ANYWHERE

thinking that there’s a set place or way to begin something can be crippling until you let that notion go.

  • Everyone is a Leader

whenever/wherever growth happens allow it. follow it when it identifies with you, don’t be afraid to follow someone else’s lead.
