How do you stay creative? "I often think of
a quote from entrepreneur Jim Rohn: 'You are
the average of the five people you spend the
most time with.' Surround yourself with people
who are doing interesting things, who are
thinking interesting thoughts, who challenge
you to be better, and who come from a diverse
set of backgrounds and experiences. That,
combined with appropriate moments of 'me'
time, provides the perfect breeding ground
for great ideas. And whatever you do, don't get
hung up on what competitors are doing. Be
aware of what's going on in the industry, but
don't let it dictate your own creative process."
Alexis Ohanian recently released his first book, Without Their Permission: How the 21st Century Will Be Made, Not Managed.
