No creativity without structure and boundaries – New Quote I Love

Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels has just received Cannes Lions‘ first Entertainment Person of the Year award. Here is a particular section of Michaels‘ speech that I quite like and adding it as a new entry to my long list of Quotes I Love. The quote starts at the 12s mark of this video,

“In my experience at SNL, there really could be no creativity without structure and boundaries. Every week we go from a blank page to on the air in six days, never knowing for sure what the final show will look like. I say every week, we don’t go on because it’s ready. We go on because it’s 11:30.” – Lorne Michaels (1944- ) (Quote starts at the 12s mark)
