Just Keep Working

[Sent out earlier in the gapingvoid newsletter etc:]

Picasso, the greatest painter of the twentieth century, didn’t sit around on his rear end all day, waiting for the muse to arrive.

Nope, he just got to his his studio every morning, and cranked it out, stopping only to eat and maybe the occasional roll in the hay with his many women… And he did this for decades. He was a machine!

Sure, there are some successful artists who prefer the sit-on-rear-end method, but how many of them are better than Picasso? Exactly.

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

Tony Hsieh

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
