Picasso’s Top 7 Tips for Creating an Exciting Life

a new fav blog of mine is the positivity blog. lots of good messages. lots of wisdom. lots to think about.
of the many articles about ways to improve life or live one that is more full, i really enjoyed the article "Picasso's Top 7 Tips for Creating an Exciting Life."

One thing to think about in reading this article or blog is that clearly Picasso did not compile his own list of his top 7 reasons. Someone else did for the purposes of this post. which means you are reading someone's ideas (Picasso's) through someone else's point of view (the post creator). So, my handy tip would be to always know what your reading an whose screening process it has ran through.

enough about are the 7 tips from Picasso, chosen by the author of the article, and now interpreted by Montastic.

(actually with all that said, you may as well skip this post and go read Picasso's writings himself...and figure out what you want to take away from his brilliance directly.)

actually, after writing that little parenthetical thought, i'm not going to give my interpretation of these...because they are so fucking wonderful already. read in to them at your will.

1. You have to believe to be able to do.

“He can who thinks he can, and he can’t who thinks he can’t. This is an inexorable, indisputable law.”

2. Push your limits.

“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.”

3. Don’t wait for inspiration or the right moment.

“Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working.”

4. Act.

“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.”

5. Ask the right questions.

“Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not.”

6. See the hidden beauty by not judging.
“If only we could pull out our brain and use only our eyes.”

7. It’s not too late.

“Youth has no age.”
