Aspiring strategic planner. New Torontonian coming into his own. Traveller and amateur photographer. Appreciator of classic photography, advertisements, and Swedish style & design. 30 Rock, tennis, Beyonce, and R&B keep me sane.
Saying “no” has more creative power than ideas, insights and talent combined. No guards time, the thread from which we weave our creations. The math of time is simple: you have less than you think and need more than you know. We are not taught to say “no.” We are taught not to say “no.” “No” is rude. “No” is a rebuff, a rebuttal, a minor act of verbal violence. “No” is for drugs and strangers with candy.
