Fear, the Creativity Killer

It’s pretty hard to get up if you’ve never fallen down.

“If you’re not prepared to be wrong you’ll never come up with anything original.” – Sir Ken Robinson

This quote was from a short speech given by Sir Ken Robinson, viewable on Ted HERE – A really good source of high quality information “ideas worth sharing

The topic is on how schools kill creativity, forcing their curriculum without seeing the potential of the children and allowing them to do the things the were born to do along with educational guidance. I couldn’t agree more.

Likening it to employees at the company, the fear of failing and not moving ahead in their role, career and life as a result of this fear is an absolute shame.

Have a plan, share it or don’t, but move forward with what you think is right. No one has ever been fired for failing at an attempt to improve the customer experience, their efficiency at work, the products and services offered at the company.

Nothing earth shattering in this post, just encouragement to run with it, be wrong, learn from it and try again.
