“The trick to being truly creative, I’ve always maintained, is to be completely unselfconscious. To resist the urge to self-censor. To not-give-a-shit what anybody thinks.
That’s why children are so good at it. And why people with Volkswagens, and mortgages, Personal Equity Plans and matching Lois Vutton luggage are not.”

This quote is taken from the blog of Linds Redding, a former creative director in the advertising industry who has been struggling with cancer for several years. His post about looking back at his time in advertising went viral recently, and with good reason. Even if you don’t work in advertising or a creative field period, it’s well worth reading.
