What is it that makes the “creative” business people successful? Quite simply, it’s their willingness to do something different.
Now this is not to say that all creative business people are successful. Certainly not. Some are EPIC failures. But all of these people are willing to try something new and those that fail can go on and learn from their mistakes and try again. Perhaps that is the real lesson.
We are all going to fail at something, sometime and depending on how much of a risk taker you are, you may fail a lot. If people weren’t willing to try new things and take risks, we wouldn’t be here. Our willingness to evolve, improve and try new things is the reason we are not yet extinct.
So if the big idea doesn’t quite pan out, learn from it and keep going. Don’t do what everyone else does. It’s not only boring; it’s also no way to move forward.
