Thoughts on Creativity and Success

Thoughts on Creativity and Success

“Presentation is about the transfer of emotion.” -Seth Godin, author of The Purple Cow and a ton of other books

“Idling or doing nothing is important. Most of us are obsessed with getting things done. We’re afraid to be unproductive. And yet, the big ideas often come to you during your periods of ‘laziness’, during those episodes of ‘wasting time’.” -Brenda Ueland, author of If You Want to Write

“To many business people, design is something you spread on the surface, like icing on a cake. It’s nice, but not mission-critical. That is not design, but rather ‘decoration’. Design starts at the beginning, not at the end; it’s not an afterthought.” -Garr Reynolds, author of Presentation Zen

“It’s going to be a harder road than you thought, and short-cutting, half-assing, and second-guessing will only hurt [you in the end].” -Loren Weisman, author of The Artist’s Guide to Success in the Music Business
