front burner creativity

To make it as a creative, you need to make the most of very limited resources. Your most valuable resource as a creative is your creative energy. You only have so much creative energy, but if you use that energy wisely, you can be leaps and bounds more productive than you could be otherwise.

To manage your creative energy well, be intentional about how you use it. One way to be intentional...

“The user experience design of a product essentially lies between the intentions of the product and the characteristics of your user.”
David Kadavy, Design for Hackers: Reverse Engineering Beauty

“We dream of building a fortress when we should be starting with a cottage. We fool ourselves into procrastinating by exaggerating how much time we really need. We create mental blocks by imagining our work will follow a linear progression.”
David Kadavy, The Heart To Start: Stop Procrastinating & Start Creating

“The first step to controlling your world is to control your culture…. To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art. —Chuck Palahniuk”
David Kadavy, The Heart To Start: Stop Procrastinating & Start Creating

“People who truly have control over time always have some in their pocket to give to someone in need. A sense of priorities drives their use of time and it can shift away from the ordinary work that’s easy to justify, in favor of the more ethereal, deeper things that are harder to justify. They protect their time from trivia and idiocy; these people are time rich. They provide themselves with a surplus of time. They might seem to idle, or relax more often than the rest, but that just might be a sign of their mastery, not their incompetence.”
Scott Berkun, Mindfire

“We have advantages. We have a cushion to fall back on. This is abundance. A luxury of place and time. Something rare and wonderful. It's almost historically unprecedented. We must do extraordinary things. We have to. It would be absurd not to.”
Dave Eggers, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius

“We feel that to reveal embarrassing or private things, we have given someone something, that, like a primitive person fearing that a photographer will steal his soul, we identify our secrets, our past and their blotches, with our identity, that revealing our habits or losses or deeds somehow makes one less of oneself. ”
Dave Eggers, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius

“The user experience design of a product essentially lies between the intentions of the product and the characteristics of your user.”
David Kadavy, Design for Hackers: Reverse Engineering Beauty

“Most people don't grow up. Most people age. They find parking spaces, honor their credit cards, get married, have children, and call that maturity. What that is, is aging.”
Maya Angelou
