  • 1. Do one thing at a time – don’t dissipate your powers; strive to concentrate them.
  • 2. Know the problem – Always have a clear idea of what it is you want to do.
  •  3. Stay true to the original idea – Then you have at least a chance of being able to live with yourself.
  • 4. Learn to listen – The opposite of talking is not ‘waiting to talk’. Pay attention and you won’t miss important input.
  • 5. Accept change as inevitable – You‘ve got to accept change as inevitable and trust the process. Be willing to let go and think new thoughts.
  • 6. Be honest and lie – Only by bending reality as we perceive it, we can hope to make another person see something in a truly new way.
  • 7. Break rules – But only if it looks better. However, one must know the rules in order to break them.
  • 8. Form beats colour – Art owes more to form for it‘s range of expressions than to colour.
  • 9. Distinguish sense from nonsense – Anything that isn’t directly helping the composition takes away from it.
  • 10. Collaborate and take part in discourse – Learn to think differently by working with others, share experiences and reflect together about your work.
