Long, but amazingly practically helpful.
"You have horizon upon horizon upon horizon inside of you—and the route to discover those is through your talents as an artist, through improving not your weaknesses but your strengths: through using your strengths in your skills, in your personality, and your obsessions to grow in the right directions as a writer, in the natural directions, in your best directions."

On Steven Johnson, the adjacent possible, and the power of collaborative work & the connected mind -

'expand the range of your possible next moves – the perimeter of your potential – by exposing yourself to as much serendipity, as much argument and conversation, as many rival and related ideas as possible; borrow, repurpose, recombine.'
