Clear thinking is logical, it’s predictable, it’s unsurprising and it’s rational. It can also stifle your creativity and dam up your constant free-flowing stream of crazy, genius ideas.
When we’re in the throes of working on a scene, composing music, writing a book, directing a video or painting a picture, the outcome is NEVER clear. In fact, it’s usually foggy, and filled with indecision, hesitation, frustration and doubt.
Important because the very last thing we want when we’re in the zone of creating, designing or inventing, is to be clear thinking. On the contrary, the very first thing we want is to be open-minded.
