Stop thinking so much.

John Cleese on creating creativity, rethinking problems without rethinking them, and the destructiveness of interruptions. Simple tactics, but how many times during a day do you get to put them into action. He also talks about the origins of ideas, and while I agree with him that inspiration comes from anywhere, this clip from Derren Brown showed creatives that *anywhere* is not some abstract place, but often a part of their everyday spaces.
