Characters Steal Like an Artist 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative

E 2012 da rede ao mostrar com bom humor ousadia e simplicidade ue não é preciso ser um gênio para ser criativo basta ser autêntico Baseado numa palestra feita pelo autor na Universidade do Estado de This review is longer than the book itselfHere are the Top Ten Points that the author makes in this teeny book1 Steal like an artist2 Don t wait until you know who you are to get started3 Write the book you want to read4 Use your hands5 Side projects and hobbies are important6 Do good work and share it with people7 Geography is no longer our master8 Be nice the world is a small town9 Be boring it s the only way to get work done10 Creativity is subtractionIt s all very good advice It s all great remindersBut that s what these are remindersThe beef I have with self help or how to books is that the information inside the covers is stuff you already know You just haven t thought about it before This isn t to say that these books aren t helpful for many but for people who are too busy or in extreme cases too lazy to think for themselves They can read the books and their third eye can open and they can think they ve just broke new ground and then they don t go off to do what it is they were learning how to doWhat is good about Kleon s book is that he acknowledges almost immediately that there is no such thing as originality Had he not written that very early on I d be calling him a hypocrite right now for trying to pass any of this off as original But that wasn t his intention he saw a market for his advice and he went with it so I give him props for that It s just that I m such a cynical person anyway I m wary of these sorts of guides I d much rather a person just muddle through on their own based on their own experiences learning from all the good and the bad that happens and creating something out of all of that This is a Hot Topic sort of creativity mass marketed polished packagedSo why did I read it Great uestion because this is not at all my thing I was curious primarily I came across his name because I came across someone s blog where the author was writing about her journal which led to her discussion of Kleon s log books and I was curious to see what he could possibly say about creativity That s One Two I m fascinated by the creative process What works for me and my creativity is going to be completely different from my boyfriend s creative process or my best friend s creative process or the stranger down the street I like reading about the daily process that my favorite writersmusiciansartistspeople to get into their creative groove because it s fascinating not because I want to copy them though Kleon recommends a lot of copying and this isn t to say there s anything wrong with it per se but it s not my motivationThe information here isn t just necessary for the stuff people generally consider creative some of stuff is helpful just in your daily life People think a 9 to 5 job is energy sapping and you can t be creative in your boring white collar job and those people sit back and do well very little of anything and judge the rest of us who have to work for what we want and say we re not creative I am creative in my job as much as possible and on paper it s not a very creative position I have to be creative to find ways of being creative And when it works it works well and it comes up in my annual reviews regularly so I m occasionally doing something right This book is a good reminder for people in those positions too who think they aren t in any position to be creative Don t get all stuck on what you or are not doing don t compare yourself to other people That s not even a part of Kleon s advice That one comes from me And a bunch of other peopleThe part I like the best is 5 Hobbies are important I always have a side project of some sort but I have yet to figure out how to consistently have energy after my stupid 9 to 5 job actually it s a 7 something to 4 something job but that s beside the point I was hoping for some insight from Kleon on that but it wasn t really there He basically just said Hey you can do this which yeah okay thanks I tell myself that every day but I m still tired and sapped Probably from all that creativity I do at work coming up with ways not to kill people or worry about backstabbing takes a crapload of energy and creativitySo again great reminders here and really great for Millennials and Gen Y and whatever generation comes after those kids have they been named yet It s a fast read hopefully inspiring even if for just the moment But don t get bogged down by it Read it because it s fast and easy feel good for a few and then go on and do your thing Do you That s all you can answer to regularly anywayThe other thing I fully 100 bajillion% agree with Kleon about keep a journal Do whatever you want in those pages but keep something If you want to be creative in any way that s going to be your rock I fill mine with everything EVERYTHING You could flip through them but you d think I am a serial killer I mean it s all very insane in these journals And I would have to kill you after you flipped through them so But that s what works for me Figure out what works for you and do that You ll appreciate it laterA little heavy handed with all the uotes but again feels geared towards younger readers anyway and hopefully many readers will want to know about those uoted people which is certainly Kleon s pointAnd on that note I can uote too I ll share one of my favorites from David Foster Wallace s Infinite JestBe a Student of the Game Like most cliches of sport this is profound You can be shaped or you can be broken There is not much in between Try to learn Be coachable Try to learn from everybody especially those who fail This is hard Peers who fizzle or blow up or fall down run away disappear from the monthly rankings drop off the circuit
