Being Creative with gapingvoid

You may know gapingvoid from Hugh MacLeod’s “cartoons drawn on the back of business cards“. Now he’s telling us How To Be Creative.

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

  • You are responsible for your own experience.
  • Everybody has their own private Mount Everest they were put on this earth to climb.
  • Don’t try to stand out from the crowd; avoid crowds altogether.
  • If you accept the pain, it cannot hurt you.

The lengthy article was picked up by Seth Godin and is now available for free in a wonderfully formatted PDF from ChangeThis. Also worth a read is Hugh’s How To Be Creative book proposal.
