Lessons From Real Simple Magazine

The only magazine to which I regularly subscribe is Real Simple. This month's issue is one of the best in a while. There was an incredible story about creativity by A.J Jacobs. One of the best lessons I took away from the article was fact that most of the bests artists were extremely prolific. Picasso created thousands of pieces of art, and some of them were not that great. The important thing is to keep trying, to keep expressing new ideas.
I think that there is so much pressure to appear perfect. From our clothes to our houses everyone wants to look like a magazine shoot. When looking at models, we have to remember that they take a thousand pictures and can pick the best one for the magazine. So many houses on Pinterest have been styled and designed by professionals with unlimited budgets. I believe that we can create gorgeous houses without those budgets, but we have to be willing to take risks and try lots of designs. We have be willing to try something, see that it doesn't work but still try something else.


I love Real Simple because they have articles like this. If you aren't a regular subscriber, I would highly recommend picking up this month's issue. There are great cleaning tips and the wonderful Jacob's story.
