It’s been an incredibly busy week here at the hidden fortress of 300 monks. And when all the work gets too crazy, I like to look for some inspiration. Here’s one of those evergreen sources…Mr. Brian Eno.
“I’m very opinionated,” says Eno. “When I was at art college, the teachers who helped me were not the ones I agreed with, or the ones who encouraged me, but the ones who took very strong positions. Because if someone does that, you can find your own position in relation to it: what is it that I don’t agree with? In the studio I want to articulate a position clearly enough so that other people can use it – or chuck it away if they don’t want it.”

So today’s takeaway – Have a strong point of view in all things creative.
