Rule: Have a vision.

"One needs to know what one wants to say as a curator, to whom one is talking and why. Vision is essential. It sounds basic, but I have met younger people who aspire to be curators and who think curating is about displaying a few objects that look nice together in a space. Ideally the vision is bigger than just one exhibition, it is a larger and more complex undertaking that stretches over an entire career and creates curatorial focus and consistency."
