How To Be Creative List

Hugh MacLeod is a marketer turned illustrator turned tailor with his trademark business card doodles jumps into the discussion of not-so-everyday life and bussiness in general. He has a long version of "How To Be Creative" peppered with his illustrations.

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.
5. You are responsible for your own experience.
6. Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten.
7. Keep your day job.
8. Companies that squelch creativity can no longer compete with companies that champion creativity.
9. Everybody has their own private Mount Everest they were put on this earth to climb.
10. The more talented somebody is, the less they need the props.
