Creativity Productivity & Work

Reconsider the Obvious

Do the obvious.  Write what people want to hear.  Take the picture people want to see on Instagram.  Do whatever everyone else is doing.

Seeking consensus thwarts creativity.  Conformity taints the art.  By following the likes and retweets, you’ll just be another cog in the system of popularity.

Perhaps when everyone’s going one way, you should think about going the other.  Doing the exact opposite steers a new path to fresh thinking.  Give them what you want.
