Hi Curt,

As a highly creative person whose drive is continually muted by self-censorship (as opposed to being fueled by self-sensorship) I found this article on monkey painting to be highly relevant to my passion -- especially if one's peers are rigid conformists (the blight).

In my opinion, there is REAL reason to FEAR that one's employer (via the corporate culture) will punish you for being creative -- even if you do it on your own time and in your own place. If the expression of your creativity is done publicly and it reflects poorly on the values that your employer thinks they are trying to present then you risk being marginalized. So be careful when displaying creativity in the workplace.

That is the price of passion -- and the joy.

Pay the mortgage, feed the kids, do all that -- but remember to also find work that suits your passion. The closer your work (and employer) aligns with your passion, the more monkey paintings you will be able to produce. So you'll eat less, and have less sex, but isn't truly authentic PASSION worth it?

For nearly 25 years, Ricardo Semler, CEO of Brazil-based Semco, has let his employees set their own hours, wages, even choose their own IT. The result: increased productivity, long-term loyalty and phenomenal growth. Can his radical approach work for you?,1759,1584900,00.asp

As usual, I really very much appreciate your daily doses of inspiration -- please keep it up!

My take on this would be to derive a definition for "The Law of Diminishing Creativity"...
