I can’t remember why, but some months ago I landed on Fiftylimited – no idea what that means. But something that caught my eye was this piece on the About page:
“There’s an economic theory out there that if you take the incomes of your five closest friends and average them, the resulting number will be pretty close to your own income. I think the same thing is true of idea incomes. You’re only going to be as good as the stuff you surround yourself with.” Austin Kleon’s from his book 10 Things Every Creator Should Remember But We Often Forget
Damn – I’m going to have to get some new friends- or maybe I’m about to get dumped by some friends :-)
I hadn’t heard of Austin Kleon before, but two clicks later, I’m on his site and reading Steal like an Artist – which I’ve since bought – and love – creativity is for everyone – and I’m a great thief!
