Creative all along, Picasso became even more abstract with age.
Unless you're taking AP courses, high school doesn't train you for college. College doesn't prepare you for work. And the cubicle is where dreams go to die.
There's a reason kids are creative. They carry around crayons and loose imaginations while adults carry around briefcases full of tiresome paperwork.
Creativity is the only way to escape the dangers of ennui. Learning how to express yourself instead of impressing others liberates the inner child.
Your most important work is the one that fuels curiosity and passion and prevents you from drifting into stagnancy.
