We’re at 3 in our countdown to publication of Lichtenbergianism: procrastination as a creative strategy, and today we look at Precept #7: STEAL FROM THE BEST.
See these books?
These are some of the books that I have read over the years that I cite in Lichtenbergianism. Did I STEAL from them? You bet I did, and they stole from others, and those others stole as well. It’s thievery all the way down.
You like an artist’s piece of music? See if you can figure out how she did it, and then let her teach you how to do it yourself.
How about that artist’s painting technique? Use it yourself.
Want to invent a brand new cocktail? Take one of your favorites and change up the ingredients.
You don’t have to reinvent the wheel, and I even show you ways to do it in Lichtenbergianism: procrastination as a creative strategy, available on Amazon, Fri, Nov 17.
