Gaudi had it right

01Dec09

Gaudí said:

Men are divided into two categories: men of words and men of action. The former talk, the latter act. I belong to the second group. I lack the means of expressing myself. I could not tell you about the concept of art. I need to give it a concrete form.

Nike Said

Just do it

Next time you’re faced with an impossible task, get scribbling. Doesn’t matter what. Get the ideas out. 

I call it creative constipation. You have to get the shit ideas out of the way first. Everyone’s first idea is the same. So have it early. Then have another. If you wait till everything is perfect you’ll wait too long.

If you get working when you don’t feel ready, you’ll have got all the nonsense out of the way when the great idea does come knocking.
