One of the greatest myths is the notion that some of us are naturally creative and others are not.


Original ideas are often composed of and inspired by things that already exist in the world—fragments that are all around us, waiting to be noticed and then reimagined in a new form.


Perhaps instead of worrying about finding time, we should worry more about a bigger threat to creativity: lack of focus.


It’s very difficult to know at the start what the outcome of your creative efforts will be.


Don’t get hung up on finding the perfect starting point. Begin with whatever you have right now, even if it’s a partial idea, an incomplete or flawed prototype, or the middle of a story.


Better to get started by giving form to something as soon as possible: write it, sketch it, prototype it. And don’t worry too much about quality, because whatever you express now will likely be revised or maybe scrapped altogether as you keep working.
