3 Secrets Of Creativity

After 100 years in the ad business I think I've discovered the secrets to being a good creative person.
  • Insomnia -- Good ideas come at odd hours. You've got to be awake when they show up. 
  • Fear of embarrassment -- If you're not afraid of your friends making fun of your work, you'll never be any good. 
  • Will -- A lot of people have talent. Only a few have the will to impose their talent. These people are a pain in the ass and drive everyone around them crazy. But they don't quit till they get it the way they want it.
But TAC we're all creative!
