Creativity naturally lives in uncertain territory. When you are attempting to build something new, knowing what works or what doesn’t is rarely a given. Even following someone else’s playbook doesn’t inherently mean you will succeed.
Not knowing how to do something is part of the process of learning and building mastery.
Sometimes that means looking like a complete boob. Like when you are learning a new language and forget half the words and mispronounce the other half.
Not knowing is part of the process. And discovering.
Discovery of the hidden mechanism of the world has been the driving motivator of countless entrepreneurs, investors, scientists and explorers.
Discovering what’s out there in the wild unknown.
Creative uncertainty also adds mystery and out-of-the-box quirks to our work.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
