Be unafraid to be wrong

This is the hardest lesson – to be unafraid to be wrong.

I think Sir Ken Robinson in his presentation about Schools Kill Creativity, talked about if you’re never wrong, or you never make a mistake then you won’t ever create anything original.

We’re trained too much to look for the ‘right’ answers to closed questions. Not innovative or differing possibilities for open ‘problems’.

I think I’ve spent the last twenty years of my life learning to believe that its okay to be wrong and confused, that learning is not an end but a process that goes forever.

I hope that I can teach this to my children.
