Logic Of The Day: 11/10/2017.
Rules make ideas predictable and boring. It helps to know the rules, but don’t abide by all of them. Picasso once said; learn the rules like a pro so you can break them like an artist. Also, you don’t need to know everything about everything.
There are many that are self-taught and unversed in the principles and practices of institutions—whether that’s in music, art or design—yet can produce outstanding, inspiring work. They’re perhaps less burdened, less distracted with the knowledge, rules and history that everyone else is.
You shouldn’t be afraid of breaking the rules because you’ll learn more about your own craft than if you didn’t. Most people decide to follow the conventions that the majority have already adopted, but there’s always another way. You may be surprised how much your audience will accept new and challenging ideas.
‘Be a rebel, break the rules and don’t be afraid of anything. What if you fail? Get up, try again.’ — Van Schneider.
