The way to have good ideas is to get close to killing yourself. It’s like
weightlifting. When you lift slightly more than you can handle, you get
stronger. In life, when the gun is to your head, you either figure it out, or
you die. When you cut yourself open, you bleed ideas. If you’re broke and close
to death, you have to start coming up with ideas. If you destroy your life, you
need to come up with ideas to rebuild it.
