(Artist Tom Sachs in his studio)
A few favorites:
Pay attention to the world and people around you.  You’ll need those observations.
Spend a lot of time with and around other artists. Talk. Drink with them. Go to openings with them.
Accept that you are not Picasso. You are almost certainly not a genius, as there are fewer than one of these per generation. Make up for it by working your ass off.
Do not wait for a dealer or curator or collector to give you a place to show. Especially these days. Get together with your peers and make it happen.
Until you’re so rich and famous that you can check out, you have to live in a community with an art scene, and you have to be a part of it.
