  2. Steve Jobs “Your work is going to fill a large

    part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.” 2005 Stanford commencement Next
  3. Steve Jobs “Your time is limited, so don't waste it

    living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” 2005 Stanford commencement Next

    work, with people you work with, with your dreams and their dreams. Whatever it was that got you to this school, don’t let it go. Whatever kept you here, don’t let that go. Believe in your friends. Believe that what you and your friends have to say… that the way you’re saying it — is something new in the world. commencement address Next
  6. John Cleese “Creativity is not a talent. It is a

    way of operating.” talk on the five factors of creativity Next
  7. Hugh MacLeod “The most important thing a creative person can

    learn professionally is where to draw the red line that separates what you are willing to do, and what you are not . Art suffers the moment other people start paying for it. The more you need the money, the more people will tell you what to do. The less control you will have. The more bulls** you will have to swallow. The less joy it will bring. Know this and plan accordingly.” Ignore Everybody Next
