French Designer Philippe Starck On “Work”

One of the most accomplished, successful, and in-demand industrial designers, Philippe Starck talked about his activities recently.  His attitude may influence you on how you view your “work” versus your “job:”

I am not intelligent.  I don’t know my alphabet, I cannot do division or subtraction, but I am a monster of intuition.  I have two types of activities.  One is real work, which is dreaming.  My subconscious delivers me all of the concepts, finished, completely done, I just have to print.  That is my real work.  Otherwise, I do my job, which is communications and meetings.

Most of us get stuck in our job, and don’t think nearly enough about our real work….

Thoughts?
