Pursue a life of focused creative work.
That is the goal for all of us, and the tools have never been better, easier, or less expensive than right this minute.
Dream. Write. Do. Now.
"The notion that the most outlandish thoughts could pay for your existence,” says Grant Morrison. “The most bizarre thoughts you may have had in 1994 on an Ecstasy tab can turn into money, which turns into houses, which turns into cat food. It’s the Yukon in our brain, it’s a gold rush, it’s all sitting there, and it’s worth money."
Our dreams and thoughts can change things, they can change the world but we need to do more than think them; our creative acts can do anything, and they are very powerful, and the oddest thought can change your life and others.
We need to chose to be active over passive. I kept creating web site after web site, until I realized that what I really wanted was to create.
Writing is not passive, not when done right.
Writing is getting in the trenches of what it means to alive, and it can show and deliver and high light all the possibilities thatit means to be human.
Say yes more than you say no.
Writing is a talent and a skill, but all the skill in the world doesn't mean anything if you have nothing to say or give.
Interesting lives leads to interesting creative acts when coupled with skill, practice, and discipline.
“We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
— Charles T. Munger”
