The other day when I was putting some luggage back up into the closet, I came across a small notebook with a few items written in it. Must have been some of my notes from a long-ago seminar I attended somewhere. These statements are in no particular order and only one is attributable to someone. Take them for what they’re worth. Who knows, they may be able to help enhance your creativity.

Be violent and original in your work, but be orderly in your normal life
Get quiet — be still and apply yourself
Creativity: Sudden cessation of stupidity
Most good ideas come fully formed
Celebrate small victories
“No” is a complete sentence
We have no art. We do everything as well as possible.
“Everything is art direction.” — Lee Clow
How to suck less: It’s not about concepts; it’s about execution (how we work)
Enemies: Laziness and Arrogance
“Effort and struggle to create simplicity and grace lives on in the soul.”
