"Sometimes it’s better to just be quiet, to not think of anything at all. Out of silence comes the greatest creativity." - James Altucher.
Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, when faced with a difficult issue, was renowned for taking long walks to think things through.
Artist, Kevin Macpherson doesn't allow people, or even a computer in his studio while he works, unless it's an emergency.
Rock star, John Mayer had to quit Twitter because, "it started to make my mind smaller and smaller and smaller. And I couldn’t write a song."
If quiet time and creativity truly are correlated (and I suspect they are), then I suggest you think about how you spend your artistic time and what distractions you can eliminate.
It's that important because the best way to sell art is to be so good they can't ignore you.
