Original thinkers ain’t so original

“Looking for an original idea? That can’t be too hard. The library must be full of them.” 
― Stephen Fry #MondayMorningWakeUpCall

3 points that I really liked –

  1. Being quick to start a project but slow to finish can boost one’s creativity
  2. By doubting your ideas instead of yourself you can motivate yourself to do better work
  3. Having (and trying) lots and lots of bad ideas is necessary to get a few good ones, ergo, if you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original
