Bruce Mau Design has written a manifesto which talks about growing. They apply their principles into their motivations and strategies for their studio. Some of them may also can apply to grow your personal capacity and creativity – highlighting several points:


15. Ask stupid questions. Growth is fueled by desire and innocence. Assess the answer, not the question. Imagine learning throughout your life at the rate of an infant.

19. Work the metaphor. Every object has the capacity to stand for something other than what is apparent. Work on what it stands for.

33. Take field trips. The bandwidth of the world is greater than that of your TV set, or the Internet, or even a totally immersive, interactive, dynamically rendered, object-oriented, real-time, computer graphic–simulated environment.

40. Avoid fields. Jump fences. Disciplinary boundaries and regulatory regimes are attempts to control the wilding of creative life. They are often understandable efforts to order what are manifold, complex, evolutionary processes. Our job is to jump the fences and cross the fields.
