Matthew Homan beats me to another great post on creativity.
Matt -- of [non]billable hour fame -- found an excellent post on "How To Be Creative" written by Hugh Macleod in his Gaping Void weblog.
Matt chose #1 as his favorite, but I'm having a harder time picking a favorite -- they're all great! I think I'm going to read this list everyday over my morning cup o' caffeine. It can serve as an incredible pre-game pep talk for all us creative-types.
This guy's a genius.
