Bad art makes you say, “Wow! Huh?” Good art makes you say, “Huh? Wow!” Looking at bad art is like eating fast food.

am a big fat fake. I suspect you may be a fake as well. As for me, I’ve made a few attempts at an education,* read a few books, asked lots of questions, and now (voilà!), I’m an “Artist, Designer, and Writer.” Why? Mostly because I said so.

The beginning of trusting yourself is merely understanding that your thoughts are in your head for a purpose. They matter, and they are valid. Listen to your own opinions, rather than the nagging echoes of fearful friends and family. Too often those thoughts that creep into our heads are fear-driven, wild prognostications of failure, carnage, and financial ruin, that usually begin with, “What if . . . ?” But where your thoughts go, you go. It takes faith in yourself and your abilities to see these thoughts as the imposters they are. When the fog of doubt is cleared, the imposters banished, we can begin to see more clearly our true nature and instincts. Then, with a little faith in yourself, you can raise your sights, look up from the abyss of failure, and take the next step. Then the one after that. Trusting yourself gives you the faith that people will hear your message, be inspired by your cause, and rise to your challenge.

The first rule of business is fun. Why fun? Without fun, there is no commitment, no enthusiasm or energy for the hard work ahead. Long hours are a drudgery and perseverance in the long term is shaky. Fun is knowing how to play and incorporating joy and wonder into your work. It means being open to mistakes as innovation and reminds us that we don’t have to work, we love to work. Without fun, you are merely one of the Working Dead, going through the motions, loitering for a payday.

The more vulnerable and authentic you can be in expressing your opinion, the deeper the connection you have with others. This is the value of your opinion—what is most personal and unique to you is the very thing that, if you risk expressing it, will speak volumes to others. The hardest part is to trust that your story and opinions have value.

Every job—especially every creative job—has two parts, an Objective and a Subjective.

Everything about your life is a test. All things, both good and bad. They are a test of your character. They test whether you can accept challenges with grace and then grow because of them, or whether you choose to whine, curse the fates, and let your anger spill out, tainting everything and everyone around you. Obstacles, fear, the naysayers: These are all just tests of your resolve, of how determined you are to succeed.

When you accept your weirdness and believe in your gifts is when things get really weird. That’s when your cause inspires others.
