To create, a person must
> Have knowl­edge but forget the knowl­edge;
> See unex­pected connec­tions in things but not have a mental disorder;
> Work hard but spend time doing nothing;
> Create many ideas yet most of them are useless;
> Look at the same thing as everyone else, yet see some­thing different;
> Desire success but learn how to fail;
> Be persis­tent but not stub­born; and,
> Listen to experts but know how to disre­gard them. · Go to Para­doxes of Creativity →
