On the side of a coffee cup

by Radio Somewhere

I was sorting through stuff and came across the notebook I used to write in around ten years ago. For a while, Starbucks was putting inspirational quotes on the sides if its cups — and I was inspired to copy this one down, although I didn’t note the name of the person to whom it was attributed. It still resonates with me today.

Some of the best inventive moments were born out of “wrong thinking.” Most people start with the right way — so they all follow the same path.

The wrong way will lead to mistakes from which you can learn and create new discoveries — the kind of original ideas that come to life when we dare to be different, keep an open mind and have no fear of failure.
