    The myth of the brainstorming session: why you can’t schedule creativity

    "Creativity is so much more than making something. Creativity is how we interact with each other… it’s like trying to insist that you’re alive." —Mike White

    Don’t let your epitaph read, ‘Knew everything. Did nothing.’

    Please, God, leave us this one mystery, unsolved: why man creates.

    In the school environment, creativity can be considered pathological behavior as opposed to the compliant traits of being reliable, sincere, good-natured, responsible, tolerant, and peaceable — the qualities associated with the lowest levels of creativity.

    Years ago, a friend of mine had a dream about a strange invention — a staircase you could descend deep underground, in which you heard recordings of all the things anyone had ever said about you, both good and bad. The catch was you had to pass through all the worst things people had said before you could get to the highest compliments at the very bottom. There is no way I would ever make it more than two and a half steps down such a staircase, but I understand its terrible logic: if we want the rewards of being loved, we have to submit to the mortifying ordeal of being known.
