Think creatively first and edit later. Very solid advice.

I loved this infographic, but wish they had gone a step further than "just ignore them" for the point about people giving negative advice. I've observed (and experienced) that people sometimes will not just stop at advice -- they'll actually interrupt you if they catch you doing something creative so that they'll "help" you stay "practical", and they'll try very hard to make sure you don't "waste your time" again. That kind of situation is a lot harder to wriggle out of.

David - Personally I edit as I go but that's just how my brain works. I can't turn off the analytical side of my brain in order to create but I've learned how to balance the two. :)

Cathy - I saw it on Copyblogger and just had to share it!

Sonia - It's a lovely way to put the advice across :)

Steven - Copyblogger do some really good stuff!

Katherine - Well sometimes negative advice is actually necessary but yeah, sometimes people interfere too much.

Great graphic, Icy.

Katherine - yes, I've had that experience in the past. It took a long time for me to shake off the idea that every hour of every day had to be spent doing something meaningful and productive. Having fun for the sake of fun, creating art for the sake of art, etc. ... time wasters, all. "Get to work" is still tattooed on my brain.
