Gapingvoid's list on How to be creative....

.... Is the best thing I've read in a while. You must go here and read it.

Some of my favorites...

So you want to be more creative, in art, in business, whatever. Here are some tips that have worked for me over the years:

1. Ignore everybody.

2. The idea doesn't have to be big. It just has to change the world.

4. If your biz plan depends on you suddenly being "discovered" by some big shot, your plan will probably fail.

6. Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten.

10. The more talented somebody is, the less they need the props.

13. Never compare your inside with somebody else's outside.

19. Sing in your own voice.

22. Nobody cares. Do it for yourself.

24. Don�t worry about finding inspiration. It comes eventually.

25. You have to find your own schtick.

26. Write from the heart.

27. The best way to get approval is not to need it.

30. The hardest part of being creative is getting used to it.

31. Remain frugal.

But you MUST go read the rest. He elaborates each one so eloquently.
