The Creativity Book by Eric Maisel | Brian Johnson
  • Creativity & Anxiety go together
    (that is normal)
  • Chunking:
    (80000 words = 100 * 800 words chapter)
  • Shells + omelettes
    (can't make omelette without breaking eggs, and some shells: mistakes are normal; mis-take, just re-take to fix)
  • Want everything
    (huge desire is OK, extraordinary, ideal in 5 years)
  • "I'm going to work"
    (before doing anything else or thinking about it)
