“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesized new things.”

In fact, one of the first pages to be created on my blog was the My Story section. On that section, I state very clearly that I didn’t create anything when it comes to building wealth. Rather, I mention on that page, that I simply connected the dots that were already there. To use Job’s term, I just synthesized things.
