This is close to my view on this subject.

Different people have different motivations & working methods, e.g., Mozart v. Beethoven.

Not everybody has to achieve this so-called "Empty Mind" to be creative.

Then he'll be happy with your work.

But what will make you happy with it?
Five a Second. Chicago's Bell & Howell Co. (cameras) announced that it would put on sale this fall the world's most expensive still camera. Its "Foton" will take five 35-mm. pictures a second, sell for $700. Bell & Howell, which has found that "families of both low and high incomes now spend over $550" for movie equipment, hopes to sell 20,000 Fotons a year.
