1. Do not be afraid to want a lot.

    Things take a long time; practice patience.

    Avoid compulsively making things worse.

    Finish what you start.

    Often people start out by thinking about all the things that they can’t do. Once you take that path, it’s very hard to get off of it. Shoot high and shoot often.

    In this interview on The Great Discontent, the inimitable Debbie Millman (who is newly on SoundCloud!) offers five pieces of advice for young people starting out in any creative field – a fine addition to our running record of sage advice.

    Complement with Neil Gaiman’s advice on the creative life and treat yourself to Millman’s sublime Look Both Ways: Illustrated Essays on the Intersection of Life and Design.

    It’s good to be reminded of these things as I head into a fresh new phase of life!
