To live a creative life, we must lose
our fear of being wrong.
– Joseph Chilton Pearce
I’m continually amazed at the creativity of the young
children I teach, but I shouldn’t be. Children have
one of the prime prerequisites for creativity –
they’re not worried about being wrong, or not good
enough, or failing. Whether it’s singing, or dancing,
or playing instruments, or creating music of their
own, they just do it for the joy of doing it – of trying
new things, of learning, of expressing themselves.
