Words of Wisdom for all creatives

Words are powerful. They have power to create a tectonic shift inside you. Here are a few words that transformed me over a period.  

About Design

When I am working on a problem, I never think about beauty but when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong. - Buckminister Fuller

About Human Mind

The mind, once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

About Problem Solving

If I had an hour to solve a problem I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and five minutes thinking about solutions. - Albert Einstein

About Courage

Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. -Nelson Mandela

About Emotional Intelligence

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. - Maya Angelou

About Transformation

Real transformation requires real honesty. If you want to move forward – get real with yourself. – Bryant McGill

About Action

To reach a port we must sail, sometimes with the wind, and sometimes against it. But we must not drift or lie at anchor. - Oliver Wendell Holmes

About Practice

I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times. - Bruce Lee

About Literacy

The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. - Alwin Toffler

About Continuous Learning

The study of art is a lifetime matter. The best any artist can do is to accumulate all the knowledge possible of art and its principles, study nature often and then practice continually. - Edgar Alwin Payne

Hope they shook you a little (may be a lot too).

Here is a hack I use to learn about any topic:  search for what the wise minds talked about the topic and you get a grasp quickly.

As a creative these quotes kept me grounded and humble hope they help you too. What ate your favs?

🥂to wisdom!
