Pinspiration is my inspiration

Recently I have become a wee bit obsessed with Pinterest (follow me @ http://pinterest.com/brigidg86/) maybe its because I feel like I have to nest for the baby coming but its also helping me feel more inspired and helping let the creative juices flow. This is a social media where you create the content and normal marketers so far aren't involved. Its a breath of fresh air and allows you to be yourself.

I would go as far to say that its the best thing thats happened on the internet forever. Of course Facebook was groundbreaking, at the time. Now its old news, I'm obsessed with that too but its fast becoming monotonous. People moaning about their lives, or posting about the most ridiculous thing that happened to them "OMG a bird hit my window"

Inspirational Quotes

The key to success is to never stop learning, well "great people never stop learning" - Bill Gates

"Every really good creative person…whom I have ever know has always had two noticeable characteristics. First, there was no subject under the sun in which he could not easily get interested-from, say, Egyptian burial customs to modern art. Every facet of life had fascination for him. Second, he was an extensive browser in all sorts of fields of information. For it is with the advertising man as with the cow: no browsing, no milk."

-James Webb Young, writing in his 1939 guide to producing ideas, articulates a timeless truth about the relationship between curiosity and creativity.

"Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through." — Ira Glass
