More on fear and stifling creativity

I actually love it when I’m scooped on ideas. Want to know why? Because it means that I’m making reasonable intuitive leaps.

It also means that, eventually, I’m going to make an intuitive leap that doesn’t seem to be intuitive.

Yeah, I think I’m smart. I’m patting myself on the back. You should, too. You’re here, afterall.

Case in point, today.

Just yesterday we were writing about how fear/ignorance is the primary reason for killing ideas, and today I stumble upon Natural Born Creativity Killers from Cameron Moll over at his Authentic Boredom. Cameron happens to be discussing an article from Create Magazine that discusses this very topic. You know? Fear factor and creativity killing.

Serendipity for you, my friend.
