“If you want to come up with old solutions, read news. If you are looking for new solutions, don’t.”

I struggle with this constantly: wanting to be an informed citizen versus spending too much time consuming news.

“I don’t know a single truly creative mind who is a news junkie — not a writer, not a composer, mathematician, physician, scientist, musician, designer, architect or painter. On the other hand, I know a bunch of viciously uncreative minds who consume news like drugs. If you want to come up with old solutions, read news. If you are looking for new solutions, don’t.”
