Finished reading Austin Kleon's Steal Like An Artist, here are a few of the many things that really resonated with me:
- Fake it until you make it.
- Practice productive procrastination.
- When you open up your process and invite people in you learn more.
- When you are unknown you have freedom to experiment. You will never get that freedom again once people start paying you money for doing what you do.
- Be nice the world is a small town.
- Create an analog and digital workstation.
- Use a logbook everyday.
- Nothing is more paralyzing than limitedless possibilities, the way to get over this creative block put some constraints on yourself.
Who is this book for? Everyone.
Some of the advice you will already know yes, but it is so nice to hear it reaffirmed. Some advice will blow your mind and some you might not fully appreciate at this stage in your career / life / journey. Regardless you will be better off after this quick and enlightening read, I am.
