What is originality? Undetected plagiarism.
The book Steal Like An Artist is crammed with straight forward wisdom. Each time I open this book I find myself having “ah ha” moments. The author Austin Kleon provides friendly reminders on how to unlock your creativity.
My favorite point made in the book is: SCHOOL YOURSELF.
School is one thing. Education is another. Ah ha. Go to library. Google your dreams. Google your problems. We are swimming in an ocean of information yet drowning in ignorance. Yes, I have a college degree yet sooo much of what I’ve learned is from spare time of my OWN research. “School” doesn’t make someone smarter nor better than you. Its a lousy excuse to use not going to school why you don’t know something when resources surround us. Looking things up and going deeper than anyone else is what gets you ahead. Two of my most creative friends, one is a high school dropout and the other never went to college. They constantly challenge me when I come to them about ideas.
