Curious to see its usability in practice. The outcome of ideas and steps implemented though is spot on, pretty much hits all the steps of creating a viral product. Mentioned by “Made To Stick” by Chip and Dan Heath: Simple, unexpected, concrete, credible, emotional, stories, check! Also in “Contagious” by Jonah Berger: social currency, triggers, emotion, public, practical value (this might be lacking, but in theory it does contain practical value), and stories. Check check. All in all though utter brilliance via design/storytelling!  

3 absolute truths

Since I’m struggling to sleep, a note to my self about the absolute truths of the world/since these are the only consistencies in a world of flux. Which in a way/just a tad helps alleviate the stress/anxiety of living life.

1) Everything is contrived or rather constructed. (Ie. cars=metal+wheels+design, law=social implementations to keep order, restaurants=places to eat together but not, plates=some ceramic object that’s flat, also jobs/job title/power) the more I breakdown the elements the stranger all becomes
2) which brings me to my 2nd point: everything is an illusion: to the core we are nothing but energy bc Einstein e=mc^2, nothing but atoms. Objects are solid because of the frequency of vibration in relation to another. Which means nothing is as it seems/or rather we only perceive so little. Also consciousness is a strange thing, as well as memory-which can be extremely faulty…
3) last because I believe everything happens for a reason which I believe is evidenced by synchronicity or maybe it’s the other way around, there is something/someone greater than us, call it God/the universe.

3 absolute truths for a world of flux.

SDAJFSLDJFD I CANT BELIEVE HOW LONG THIS TOOK, a mere 6 seconds of fishes doesn’t quite show the actual input…but that’s the price of practice, and hopefully perfection.

Steal Like An Artist - Promotional Poster.

You don’t need to be a genius, you just need to be yourself. That’s the message from Austin Kleon, a young writer and artist who knows that creativity is everywhere, creativity is for everyone. A manifesto for the digital age, Steal Like an Artist is a guide whose positive message, graphic look and illustrations, exercises, and examples will put readers directly in touch with their artistic side.

When Mr. Kleon was asked to address college students in upstate New York, he shaped his speech around the ten things he wished someone had told him when he was starting out. The talk went viral, and its author dug deeper into his own ideas to create Steal Like an Artist, the book. The result is inspiring, hip, original, practical, and entertaining. And filled with new truths about creativity: Nothing is original, so embrace influence, col- lect ideas, and remix and re-imagine to discover your own path. Follow your interests wherever they take you. Stay smart, stay out of debt, and risk being boring—the creative you will need to make room to be wild and daring in your imagination.

Get it here.

So much yes to these statements.
