And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition." - Steve Jobs, American entrepreneur, business magnate, inventor, and industrial designer

"I have devoted 30 years of research to how creative people live and work, to make more understandable the mysterious process by which they come up with new ideas and new things.

They contain contradictory extremes; instead of being an individual, each of them is a multitude." - Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi author of the book 'Creativity: The Work and Lives of 91 Eminent People'
"Discard everything that does not spark joy." - Marie Kondo, Japanese organizing consultant and author
