Read a lot and follow your curiosity. You should never stop investing in yourself.
To have good ideas, we need to consume good ideas too. Your formal education isn’t the end. If anything, it’s the beginning.
Getting stuck is normal. It’s our reaction to it that really matters.
Step aside, find other projects and actively ignore the thing that got you stuck. By doing this, your subconscious creates space for ideas to grow.
It transforms us into “perfectionists”. And that is a form of safety.
We all have ideas and we should practice not rejecting them before giving them a chance.
It's about pushing boundaries, failing miserably, and having the strength to stand back up again.
Is where you edit and tear down the ideas you’ve made. You spot flaws and you edit ruthlessly. This mindset is closed, focused, critical and precise.
The advantage of this flow is that you can make your work a lot better.
The downside is that it can often block you from thinking of new ideas because they get rejected too quickly.
Write down ten ideas every day. They can be for yourself of for someone else.
Most of the ideas will suck, but a few will be gold. Take the good ones, save them, implement them, then double down on what works.
Get in the practice of generating ideas so you’ll become an idea person.
Passion runs hot and burns out, while people with purpose — think of it as passion combined with reason — are more dedicated and have control over their direction.
