Understand by yourself * Definition is just for you to think, to review what you are going to do. To examine your motivation as well as your purpose. * Coming out ideas is easy, but it will be hard to develop ideas into useful, meaningful, valuable ones. * Money and freedom is important, but it’s not everything. It’s about society, people, policy, or even the market. * Are ”Creative”, “Industry”, “Design” conflict with each other? Or are they sharing the same part? * Industry, Linear input and outcome. Result can be expected. * Creativity adds value to things, but usually without expectation. * Regard Design or Creativities as a system instead of a value chain. * Why Creative Industries need to be categorized?
