Do you create by following rules? Or do you create by ear, feeling and instinct? I believe the best artists, writers and musicians create by their gut — ear, feeling and instinct. The best creative leaders know the rules but also know when and where to break the rules or throw them out the window. When the rules are telling you one thing and your gut is telling you another, follow your gut. You will be the better artist for it.
