“Ignorance is your best weapon because you’ll be armed with fewer excuses.” — Adam Brault

Brault writes about diffusing the excuse mechanism by embracing ignorance. We often see notable creatives say their success happened because they had no idea what was and wasn’t possible. The next time you find yourself in over your head, don’t panic. Embrace the uncertainty as a chance to push your limits. As Brault writers:

You already are who you are and the very want for doing it is the only call you need to make it happen. You don’t need permission and you don’t need to “become” something first.

    I’d go as far as to say that ignorance is an essential component of the creative process. If you always know what your doing and you always do what you know you then you are not creating anything new. Embracing the idea of failure is important too. Sir Ken Robinson came up with this great phrase, ‘If you’re not prepared to fail, you’ll never create anything original

      Right—fear is the enemy of creativity, period. 🙂

    It’s so nice to hear someone else say that for a change! Thank you!
