“... everyone who comes into contact with a child is a teacher who incessantly describes the world to him, until the moment when the child is capable of perceiving the world as it is described. According to Don Juan, we have no memory of that portentous moment, simply because none of us could possibly have had any point of reference to compare it to anything else. From that moment on, however, the child is a member. He knows the description of the world; and his membership becomes full fledged, I suppose, when he is capable of making all the proper perceptual interpretations which, by conforming to that description, validate it ...”

Ignore Everybody


So much great advice, so little space : )  Click on the image to view a larger and readable source and I recommend spending some time reading Hugh’s writing – he knows something!


When I posted this I wasn’t sure it would be OK to use Hugh’s image (based on past experiences with my own work!) – so I wrote him to make sure it was OK with him. He gracefully replied and acknowledged that it was OK and also asked if I could link to his upcoming book Ignore Everybody: and 39 Other Keys to Creativity– which I am glad to do (I have read references to Hugh as an excellent marketingadvertising guy – so take note and learn from his communication with me!).

BUT, Hugh has gracefully and heroically  cut the branch supporting him. If you’ve read the book title (and if you are reading these words, then you already have, numerous times) – then you have been given a great gift (ironically, if you need it then you probably don’t know it) and in my opinion Hugh’s most important insight & advice. I am very serious! If you truly want to explore, embrace and enjoy your creativity then take Hugh’s generous advice –  Ignore Everybody, stop looking for it elsewhere, start now by NOT BUYING Hugh’s book.

If you’re already “on your game” and don’t need the book then by all means get it – I am sure it will be great fun, good reading and inspiring (see for yourself). If  you are searching (how wonderful!) then know this –  the book will not give you any keys to creativity – simply because there are none to be given. Ask Hugh!

Now that I think of it, my previous post from earlier today is in a way about this too…
