Mistakes on Purpose
In every job, one wants to move forward, be creative.
We all want to make good stuff. But when you try real, real hard and focus on being “good” this creates stress.
Patterns are repeated. We know how to get good results. We get the same ones all the time! Computers.
We all use them. And computers don’t make mistakes.
Too bad, because mistakes are where newness and freshness comes from. Out of the blue.
In the Workshop, we get out of our own way- there’s no problem-solving, no critique, and so no way to fail.
People invent new things, and have unexpected ideas. That is what it’s for. Think of it as tuna surprise, but without the tuna.
