How to Creativity (Day 16): Allow yourself to make mistakes

# 1 Make a bad drawing

Making mistakes, messing up, failing…all welcome in the creative process.

Why?

Because you can learn from these messes. They are a treasure trove of learning.

In fact, I don’t think it is possible to truly learn without making a mess of it. The more you mess up, the more mistakes you make and work with, the more you learn.

So try to embrace your mistakes…and see them for what they truly are…learning opportunities.

And taking it up a notch…perhaps there is nothing like a mistake…because when you are creating something truly new…there is no “image” you are trying to aspire to, no preconceived pattern.

So…here is my thought for today: maybe it is not a mistake…maybe it is a discovery!

How many discoveries/mistakes can you make today?

 

This creativity series is a warm up to May, which is a #becometheartistyouare challenge month. Are you joining us? Easter is a pwyw offer time…so make use of it while it lasts!
