THINGS I HAVE LEARNED
We should constantly challenge our perception and never stop keeping our eyes open for new theories. It’s important to accept that there is no ultimate truth, just different perspectives. We start to open up our thinking as soon as we also look out for contradicting information. Nothing is certain, nothing is consistent but that shouldn’t scare us.
If you always know what you are doing, you can’t be doing anything original. I learned how to get out of routine ways of thinking and perceiving, forcing myself leave my comfort zone. There is no need to worry in order to discover uncharted ground. Doing something different, original or innovative invariably involves having the courage to take risks. So don’t be a sausage machine producing the same piece of work over and over again.
Quality is better than Quantity. But quality comes out of quantity. The first idea can barely be the best one, as you haven’t produced enough quantity to excerpt the quality. Getting lost on the way and failing with ideas is necessary to finally come up with a successful creative solution. We need to accumulate information first before we can boil them down to an essence. We have to explore before knowing what’s right.
As soon as you stop being tensed up, everything starts running smoothly. The flow comes automatically if you don’t want it too much. Let go and take life with ease.
We are happier if we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
