Content creation has become one of the major challenges for social media marketers and online publishers. Bloggers face this obstacle every day. It is also a path of resistance to writing or even starting a blog.
The question is often posed… “What shall I write that hasn’t been said before or written about?“
It stops many a creator from publishing, writing, painting or composing. Children don’t have this block. They copy everything they see. Ever seen a seven year old dressed as their favorite super hero?
Your job as an artist, producer, creator and author is to shamelessly start stealing. Many people of perceived genius and as front runners in their industry have perfected the art of stealing. All creative work stands on what has gone before.
- “Good artists borrow, great artists steal” – Picasso
- “The only art I’ll ever study is stuff I can steal from” – David Bowie
- “We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.” – Steve Jobs
- “I invented nothing new, I simply assembled the discoveries of other men behind whom there was centuries of work” – Henry Ford
