Steal Like an Artist

If you’re looking for some creative inspiration in your life, you might find it in ‘Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative‘.

Its author, Austin Kleon says:

‘You don’t need to be a genius to be successful, you just need to be yourself. Follow your interests wherever they take you. Stay smart, stay out of debt, and risk being boring.’

Kleon, a successful artist, puts forth these ten rules to being creative:

  • Steal like an artist – the artist is a collector, nothing is original, nothing is really new
  • Don’t wait until you know who you are to make things – make things, then you’ll know yourself
  • Write the book you want to read
  • Use your hands
  • Side projects and hobbies are important
  • Do good work, then put it where people can see it
  • Geography is no longer our master
  • Be boring – it’s the only way to get work done
  • Be nice – the world is a small town
  • Creativity is subtraction
