Daily Mindset

“Creativity is allowing one to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” – Scott Adams

We all want to create something amazing in this life. A successful career, building a deep relationship, to anything and everything between. In this process, we easily forget how crucial it is to allow ourselves to make mistakes.

We learn after mistakes, no question about that, but there’s something even more important here – the will to try so hard, that we make mistakes. If we are living in a state of fear, that we’ll fumble the ball or miss the chance… we never take the risk. We move through life on safe.

Just like training for a 200lb snatch, we wouldn’t expect to be able to lift the weight on Day 1. We’d start at a lighter load, steadily building over the weeks. Countless misses and technical faults along the way, but we still come back to try once more. Fine tuning, until we’ve reached our “art”.
