Ricky Gervais On Learning To Write

"Being honest is what counts. Trying to make the ordinary extraordinary is so much better than starting with the extraordinary, because that doesn't really connect- it washes over you and you don't really think about it the next day. Whereas if something is real for one person, it has touched on their life."

Great anecdote about a lesson he learned early in life that stays with him to this day. This video is the first of the new Creation Stories series at Fast Company, and I'm looking forward to more.
