John Cleese on the 5 Factors to Make Your Life More Creative | Brain Pickings


Stashed in: Creativity, comedy, Monty Python, Humor, @brainpicker

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:
  1. Space (“You can’t become playful, and therefore creative, if you’re under your usual pressures.”)
  2. Time (“It’s not enough to create space; you have to create your space for a specific period of time.”)
  3. Time (“Giving your mind as long as possible to come up with something original,” and learning to tolerate the discomfort of pondering time and indecision.)
  4. Confidence (“Nothing will stop you being creative so effectively as the fear of making a mistake.”)
  5. Humor (“The main evolutionary significance of humor is that it gets us from the closed mode to the open mode quicker than anything else.”)

I love that two items pertain to time. Time is important.
