Marty Neumeier is right on when he says:
"The fact is, if you already knew how to proceed with a project, you wouldn’t need creativity. You could just follow the recipe, read the manual, or tick the boxes. Creativity is the discipline you use when you don’t know the answers, when you’re traveling to parts unknown. On this type of journey, missteps are actually steps. Every mistake brings you closer to the solution.
But here’s the catch: You have to make bold mistakes. Smart mistakes. New mistakes. Because if you only do what you’ve always done, you’ll only get what you’ve already got. You have to try, fail, and learn. Then try something new, fail a different way, learn more."
It's the only way to grow and tap into your resourcefullness. We've been taught from a young age - probably the first time we tried to walk - or even earlier that mistakes are bad. Fact is mistakes are growth. Mistakes are life. Mistakes are how you will create something that has never been created before.
