  • Creativity necessarily entails failure, mistakes, false starts, setbacks, opposition, etc.
  • Most creative individuals produce a lot of low quality output, much more in fact than their best work.
  • Failure is a form of feedback, it tells you what isn’t working and where you need to focus your future efforts.
  • Trial and error is experimentation within different resources, methods, processes, etc.
  • Experimentation requires creativity and imagination. It thrives on divergent and lateral thinking.

    Thanks for the insight. Nice that you include creativity, and that you show that it has applications in business as well. That connection is not always clear.
