There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. … No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.

Think of yourself as a freelancer for life and always nurture your networks, no matter what. Avoid getting lulled into a false sense of security. To stay engaged, take control of your professional development. The alternative is rather feudal.
Things are changing, not because the power wants to change, but rather because the power is being pushed to change by ideas. The people, with today’s technology, already sense the light at the end of the tunnel.
Listening to your intuition will change your life. And it all starts with doing something that’s aligned a little more with your personal truth — tomorrow.

I firmly believe that art & design will transform our economy in the 21st century the way that science and technology did in the last century.

looking at our favourite works of art can help guide and console us so that we can be better versions of ourselves. It can make you remember what’s important and can ground you when life is getting out of hand.
When I look at the success I have, it’s because of my creative-thinking skills. And I would extend that out to anybody in any field who is immensely successful
