“Brainstorming is the worst thing you can do. The main reason why is because of this process of trying out strange new ideas versus when you put people together in a room, almost invariably they will try to conform socially. So you will get creative ideas, but you won’t get as creative when people are trying to please each other than when they’re trying to push the envelope. And so the studies invariably show that the quality of the creative ideas that people put out individually are invariably higher in quality than those done in a group format. So another myth bites the dust.” – Rex Jung
Had the Internet not come along and become the fulcrum of technological innovation and creativity, I’d probably still think I’d want to go to Law School.
Instead, I’m thinking through blogging, writing a few eBooks, taking photos, and making beats.
Give anyone the tools and the worldwide reach and they’ll be make it happen.
Never unfilled, never bored. There’s always the next hyper-connected thing to do. Addiction, possibly, but the Internet is just too good to be true.
“The idea of ‘Days Turned Over’ answers a need to have a personal creative space, not affected by customer demands. I decided to have a space where all is valid, even images that I don’t like.”
Keep those shitty rough drafts. They may make sense one day. You’ll relish their imperfection.
