★★★ BIG 10 IDEAS ★★★

(1:40) 1. NOTHING IS ORIGINAL
Start viewing art as objective not subjective.
There’s not “good ideas” or “bad ideas” - only ideas worth stealing & ideas not worth stealing. We can embrace influence, not run from it. When people call something original, nine out of ten times they just don’t remember where influences came from.

(3:00) 2. EVERYTHING IS A REMIX
We are all remix. Mother + Father = You. 1 + 1 = 3. Process of evolution. We are the average of the top five people we hang around most. We are also the sum of our role models and influences.
Create your own "Influence Family Tree".

(5:45) 3. DON’T WAIT - START BEFORE YOU’RE READY
It is not that we must “know who we are” before we create, it is in the process that we find who we are. Life isn’t about “Finding ourselves” life is about CREATING OURSELVES

(7:45) 4. IMPOSTER SYNDROME
Shift in identity is hard - might feel as if not there yet.
Can’t view it that way. Imitation is how we learn. Musicians = scales. Painters = reproduce masterpieces. Kids = alphabet. Drums = cover songs. Remember: even The Beatles started as cover band. Paul McCartney said the only reason The Beatles wrote their own songs was so other bands couldn’t copy set!

(9:20) 5. STEAL, DON’T PLAGERIZE
Plagiarism: to try to pass someone else work as own. Plagiarism is self defeating. When you plagiarize something you deny your own creativity. Like a mechanic takes apart car to see how works.
We reverse engineer ideas. WILSON MIZNER: “if you copy from one author it’s plagiarism, but if you copy from many, it’s research.”

(11:00) 6. GO DEEPER
Don’t just copy style, copy thinking behind style.
Conan O’Brien says all comedians start by emulating heroes, fall short, then find own style. Kobe Bryant says there isn’t a move that’s a new move. Watched tapes of heroes and tried to copy. Then realized didn't have same body type to pull off - became “original”.

(11:40) 7. WRITE THE BOOK YOU WANT TO READ
Scratch your own itch - EX: male cosmetics / hair products. Couldn’t find any made from scratch / good ingredients that didn’t kill my soul using. Salon style / etc. Start business you want to run. Play music you want to hear. Build products you want to use.

(13:40) 8. LIFESPAN OF A PROJECT

(16:30) 9. WRITE IT DOWN
Importance of keeping a journal.

(17:40) 10. SIMPLIFY
No more than 3 points videos.
Apple = obsessed with clean and simple. iPhone only have ONE button! Streamlined. Dr. Sues wrote “The Cat in The Hat” with only 236 words! Then editor dared him with 50 words = Green Eggs and Ham. One of bestselling children's books of all time. Creativity is subtraction.
