”Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.”
~ Scott Adams
Insanity is doing the same thing, the same way, over and over, while expecting different results. We’ve all heard this saying and often apply its wisdom to reasons to change negative life habits. However, this statement can also be applied to the creative process and scientific innovation. World Creativity and Innovation Day provides us an excuse to try to solve old problems in new ways with the potential of finding better and more effective ways to accomplish our goals! No more hum-drum day to day sameness! Instead open your creative center and try to make the world a better place!
