“We are the facilitators of our own creative evolution.”
– Bill Hicks
So, today’s been pretty busy. That’s my excuse for keeping it really short and I’m sticking to it!
But I had one interesting philosophical discussion today. “Is the world a testing ground?”
That really got me going. And it’s actually not a bad way of looking at it. If we look at evolution it’s been all about throwing stuff against a wall and seeing what sticks.
If it’s useful it stays, if it’s useless it… Well… Let’s not think about that.
Why evolution hasn’t taken care of tapirs? I do not know.
So, how does this relate to creativity? Look at the process you’ve gone through up until now. It’s been a long series of trials and errors. Oh, god, the errors!
You’ve learned a lot along the way and everything that hasn’t worked you’ve probably thrown to the curb. What’s left? The things you found worked best for you.
Have a look at the short video at the bottom and see if it isn’t pretty close to what you’ve experienced yourself.
Today is all about putting things in perspective. Don’t worry about past failures and what isn’t working. Finish it to the best of your current abilities and learn from it.
Also, look back for a bit. What are some lessons you can really appreciate having learned right now? Have you taken time to celebrate that fact? Maybe you should?
Above all else, have a kick-ass ₢eative day!
