One of the first things a relationship therapist learns is that couples argue to burn up energy that could be used for something else.
In fact, arguments often serve the purpose of using up energy, so that the couple do not have to take the courageous, creative leap into an unknown they fear.
Arguing serves the function of being a zone of familiarity into which you can retreat when you are afraid of making a creative breakthrough.

The key question isn't "What fosters creativity?"
But it is "why in God's name isn't everyone creative?"
Where was the human potential lost?
How was it crippled?
I think therefore, a good question might be not "why do people create?" but "why do people not create or innovate?"
We have got to abandon that sense of amazement in the face of creativity, as if it were a miracle if anybody created anything.

Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else.

"Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.”
