How To Be Creative

I found this inspiring entry on another website, and while it is meant for artists, the basic spirit can really be applied acorss the board. Check it out:
How To Be Creative

There's a lot to take in here, but I think my favorite is this one:
10. The more talented somebody is, the less they need the props.

My father would say this all the time. Still does, in fact. I've had people tell me I should brag a bit more about whatever my latest accomplishment is, but the more time I spend "bragging," the less time I spend "doing." I'd rather be "doing." That's just my way. I believe my work should speak for itself, and if it doesn't, then I have to revisit what I'm doing and find a way to make it better.

That's why I like GOYA Fridays, a brainchild of photographer Zack Arias. We go out and make personal photos at least once a week just because we can. If you are a photographer, I highly encourage you to join us every week!

What should I do with this day? I think I'm going to take some photos : )

I knew I did something wrong.

don't worry... there's no one right way to do anything. i never even had a day job to begin with when i started up my business officially! so i guess you could say i'm so far off that path that i might as well have been raised by wolves...
: )

just do good work, and enjoy what you do...
