Creativity is as important in education as literacy and we should treat is with the same status - Sir Ken Robinson in his Ted Talk
Designers always make conscious decisions and act with intention. Be it organizing their bookshelf or presenting their work, they see the opportunity to do things better. In our society, everything is a result of decision made by someone, designers are those someones.
Fear is the biggest obstacle people face in creative success - fear of being judged, fear of getting started, fear of the unknown. Fear of failure also holds us back from learning all sorts of new skills, from taking on risks, and from tackling new challenges. But if you want more success, you have to be prepared to shrug off more failure. People with creativity figure out what went wrong and what to do better next time. The messiness of such trial and error may seem uncomfortable at first, but action allows most of us to learn at a faster rate; it’s almost a prerequisite for success
Release your idea into the wild before it’s ready. Tim Ferris in his 4-hour work week says that whenever he has to write a book or start a business, he tests it by running ads on Google/ Social media and based on how much engagement / interest he is getting from the potential customers, he makes the decision whether to turn it into an actual project or not.
