Key to Creativity is Error Recovery, Not Failure Avoidance

If you’re doing something that’s never been done before, how can you make the perfect plan? Whether it’s an art concept, a picture, a business model, or a meal: you can’t. Innovation, by definition, has no road map. Important: the same goes with creativity. That’s why I like people who “do” and fail, a helluva lot more than people who just sit around and talk about it.

Randy Nelson of Pixar says it more eloquently. “The core skill of innovators is error recovery, not failure avoidance.”

I think this–and many additional ideas in this video–are brilliant.
