I’ve got this shitty mindset that everyone is temporary. Why waste your time on people when you know that they’ll be gone eventually? So when I attach myself to someone, I put my whole fucking heart into them. And I guess that’s what fucks me over every single time. I don’t keep that mindset consistent when someone comes along and blinds me with their words. It’s such a shitty thing. I feel like I need to train myself to become heartless.

The biggest obstacle to creativity is attachment to outcome. As soon as you become attached to a specific outcome, you feel compelled to control and manipulate what you’re doing. And in the process you shut yourself off to other possibilities.

I got a call from someone who wanted me to lead a workshop on creativity. He needed to tell his management exactly what tools people would come away with. I told him I didn’t know. I couldn’t give him a promise, because then I’d become attached to an outcome — which would defeat the purpose of any creative workshop.’

It’s hard for corporations to understand that creativity is not just about succeeding. It’s about experimenting and discovering.

my idea of wealth has changed. when i was little i’d dream about living in a giant mansion with like a tennis court and a bowling alley and an indoor swimming pool and all other sorts of sports things i’d never use. now when i fantasize i’m like, “maybe someday i’ll be able to rent a one bedroom apartment and live there alone.”
