Space: “You can’t become playful, and therefore creative, if you’re under your usual pressures.”
Time: “It’s not enough to create space; you have to create your space for a specific period of time.”
Time again: “Giving your mind as long as possible to come up with something original,” and learning to tolerate the discomfort of pondering time and indecision.
Confidence: “Nothing will stop you being creative so effectively as the fear of making a mistake.”
Humor: “The main evolutionary significance of humor is that it gets us from the closed mode to the open mode quicker than anything else.”John Cleese, A lecture on creativity, 1991
