Sustainably Creative

Keeping it simple

Some of the things I’ve learnt (and recently relearnt) about keeping it simple:

  1. Tools don’t make the artist (or the writer, or the poet, etc), doing the work does.
  2. Making things simpler isn’t about trying new things, it’s about using less.
  3. Choice (whether that’s choosing between lots of ideas or tools) just complicates things.
  4. If what you do works for you, don’t change it needlessly.
  5. Start from wherever you are, don’t feel you need new things to discover the best work process (or tools), use what you have.
  6. New processes and ways of working will present themselves as you need them, don’t go looking for them.

My favorite is #6…….”New processes and ways of working will present themselves as you need them”
