On Ideas, being inspired, and obsession

8. MAR. 2023


Hey guys,

You might have noticed something different about this issue.

I'm trying out a new format.

Let me know what you think of it, I would love to hear your answer.

All right, here's a bit of inspiration for you this week.


1. On Ideas:

"An idea is a network on the most fundamental level. A new idea is a new network of neurons firing in sync with each other inside your brain. It's a new configuration that has never formed before."

​— Steven Johnson's Ted Talk​


2. On AI & Art:

β€œWhat I find interesting about art is the point of view of the person making it. And I don't know if AI has a point of view of its own. I don't know how interesting an AI's point of view would be. But I like people's points of view. What makes a great artist to me is something about their point of view does something to me.”

​— Rick Rubin on the Huberman Lab Podcast​


3. On Being Inspired:

4. On Writer's Block

"When we say we can't write, it's really the feeling that we can't write anything perfect. We are certainly capable of writing poorly. No one has a 'writing poorly' block. So, if you write poorly enough, your brain will give up, and sooner or later, you will start writing well."

​— Seth Godin on the Futur Podcast​


​

5. On Obsession

"Productivity is often a distraction. Don’t aim for better ways to get through your tasks as quickly as possible, rather aim for better tasks that you never want to stop doing."

​— Kelly Kevin (h/t David Perell)​
