Life is an art and a science. Expect to make a mess. Own the mess and the process and life becomes beautiful and amazingly powerful.
When they told you to color in between the lines, “they” did you a great disservice. “They” were wrong. Creating something valuable is a messy process.
This is why artists and scientists both experiment and fail – a lot.
Want to create something important? Meaningful? Impactful? Beautiful? Let yourself get messy. Let yourself be wrong sometimes.
Of course, even artists need to clean up – sometimes; there’s new inspiration to be found when a fresh canvass comes out. And even scientists have to use their imaginations – sometimes; or they would never be able to “see” what can’t be “seen,” but which can be discovered. It’s their process and it works.
What’s your process?
