Seven Misconceptions About Creativity and How to Harness It

Remember to stay true to your own creative energy, methods, and approach.
Forget comments others make about your way to do things, such as

  1. You are too original
  2. You are too alone
  3. You are too distracted
  4. You are too focused
  5. You are too in love (with your idea)
  6. You are too perfect
  7. You are too aimless

There’s a way to hack these. Take a look at this source article.
Joseph-Campbell
To quote Joseph Campbell, an America mythologist and scholar “follow your bliss.”  Campbell’s work influenced George Lucas’ (Star Wars) filmmaking.
Adding my own sentiment to Campbell’s philosophy – follow your bliss, and not someone else’s.
Other Campbell quotes:
“We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”
“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.”

“The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.”
Joseph Campbell, A Joseph Campbell Companion: Reflections on the Art of Living
