Success vs Failure

“An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail.” -Edwin Land

If you knew beyond a doubt that you could not, would not, fail, what would you do?

Knowing that it might not be perfect, why are you not doing it anyway?

No one other than you needs to know about it if it “fails.” And you can share it if it is a success. Who defines success and failure anyway?

In creative endeavors, any attempt is a success so you honestly cannot fail. Strike that word from your vocabulary. It is not relevant to you at this point in your creative life.
