2.Don’t wait until you know who you are to start making things - Making things = Knowing thyself - Fake it till you make it
3.Write the book you want to read / Draw what you want to see -Write what you like, not what you know
4.Use your hands 5.Side projects and hobbies are important 6.Do good work, then put it where people can see it 7.Geography is no longer our master 8.Be nice (the world is a small town) 9.Be boring, it's the only way to get work done -eat,sleep,exercise well -stay out of debt -get a day job -get yourself a calendar -choose your companions well ~ this doesn't just mean your life partner, it's who you do business with, who you befriend, who you choose to be around. 10.Creativity is subtraction -it's also what you choose NOT to put in your work.
