One of the ideas I took away from this video is that you MUST be prepared to fail to be creative. If you are afraid of failing then you won’t/can’t put yourself out there with something new. You will stick with the known, the safe.
“If you are not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with something original”
“We are educating people out of their creative capacities.”
This is a fantastic presentation by Sir Ken Robinson from TED Talks. It is on the long side (20 min) but worth every second.
