Inspiration for your Every Day


I attended the Tom Kelley talk at Stanford, and took some notes during his lecture. Here are the valuable invaluables :-).

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain and artist once we grow up"

What happened to all the artists? It's OK to be an artist!

1. Think like a traveler

The real act of discovery consists not in finding new lands, but in seeing with new eyes - Marcel Proust

2. Treat life as an experiment

"I haven't failed. I've just found ten thousand ways that do not work."

3. Nurture an "Attitude of Wisdom"

"It's not what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that ain't so." - Mark Twain

4. Use your whole brain...and your "tortoise mind"

Take time to daydream.

FIND YOUR OWN MUSE


5. Follow your passions

DO WHAT YOU LOVE <3
, you'll be better at it.

Find the happy medium between: Good at, Born to do, Pay you to do

Keep a journal of when you feel at your best.

The Supreme acheivement is to blur the line between work and play.

I hope this information helps your along the way...whenever you lose your way, just go back to these basics!-sharon
