John Cleese on Creativity

Watch for yourselves:

Some quotes:

Now, in the closed mode an uncultured [petri] dish is an irrelevance. In the open mode, it’s a clue.

To get into open mode, you need: space, time, time, confidence, humor.

If, while you’re pondering, somebody accuses you of indecision, say: »Look, Babycakes, I don’t have to decide until Tuesday and I’m not chickening out of my creative discomfort by taking a snap decision before then: that’s too easy.«

Alan Watts: »You can’t be spontaneous within reason«

Humor gets us from closed to open mode as quickly as nothing else.

There is a difference in between seriousness and solemnity.
