Don’t be a “copy cat”. We want to hear your voice, your ideas, your work. Be authentic and true. Write with mistakes and correct them later. Go with the flow of your ideas and you will see that it leads you to somewhere that no one else could have imagined or written down. You cannot copy inspiration. Intelligence. Wit. Yourself.
If you do copy. Do so gracefully. State where you took the information. Hat tip your source. Thank someone who inspired you.
If you copy and take praise, remember that it is not professional and you lose moral authority as a person or entity or project you are associated with. Although the source may never find out, you will know that you did and that’s what matters.
I am working on a design project and thought this was a great piece of inspiration…and by “break the rules” I would say question the rules, the status quo, the normal way of doing things. Sometimes our perception of limitations/rules needs to be broken by thinking creatively about solutions and by designing experiences.
Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them- a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.
