How Rejection Breeds Creativity

How Rejection Breeds Creativity | Managing the Failure Experience | Scoop.it

In 2006, Stefani Germanotta had hit a turning point in her career. She had quit a rigorous musical theatre program at an elite college to focus on her musical passion and, after a year of hard work and little income, had signed a deal with Def Jam records. But this promise wouldn't last. Just three months after signing, Def Jam changed its mind about Stefani's unusual style and released her from her contract.
Nearly two years after her initial rejection, Stefani was finally able to introduce her sound and her self to the world – as Lady Gaga.

Success rarely comes without failure.  

 

Why is it that so many people are afraid to fail?  Afraid to admit their flaws?  Why can't everyone be transparent about strengths and weaknesses?

Why Success Starts With Failure

Why Success Starts With Failure | Managing the Failure Experience | Scoop.it
Society would be better off if it became comfortable with trial and error, argues the author of "Adapt," a new book.  One of the main ideas of the book is that the world is full of interesting ideas that might help solve some of our big problems, but nobody really knows which of these ideas will work and which will fail. So policy makers, corporate leaders and social campaigners need to be much more open to all sorts of formal and informal experiments.

Getting It Wrong: Surprising Tips on How to Learn: Scientific American

Getting It Wrong: Surprising Tips on How to Learn: Scientific American | Managing the Failure Experience | Scoop.it
People remember things better, longer, if they are given very challenging tests on the material, tests at which they are bound to fail. In a series of experiments, they showed that if students make an unsuccessful attempt to retrieve information before receiving an answer, they remember the information better than in a control condition in which they simply study the information. Trying and failing to retrieve the answer is actually helpful to learning. It’s an idea that has obvious applications for education, but could be useful for anyone who is trying to learn new material of any kind.

Beth Kanter's curator insight, December 22, 2012 11:30 AM

This is a great message and technique to incorporate into a session about letting failure go.   The video is short and worth listening to all of it, but if you are impatient skip to minute 7 and listen to the last five minutes.


Inner Voices:   We all have inner negative headsets that we learned as kids.   It boils down to: 


Don't Make A Mistake
Don't Make A Mistake


Then there is the "mistake" moment.   We cringe ....   Think of your last mistake -- personal or at work.     Feel what your body does -- the cringe, the shame.  What does it feel like.    That's what is stopping us from learning from mistakes or failure.


Our body gives in to the mistake.  It's like gumby doing the bidding.   I made a mistake!


No matter you learned this as a child - in school or whatever.    As an adult, it probably still haunts you.   It keeps you from being creative, stops us, but here is a technique to get past it:  The failure bow.


Coming to Terms With A Mistake So You Can Learn


Trapeze artists do it, improvisers, gymnists


Don't go into cringe mode, do this:


(1)   Raise hands to offer it up and let it go

(2)   Dumb ass grin like a dog being trained and uses submission

(3)   Say thank you I failed and move on


Don't walk into a meeting late and raise your hands and shout this, but you can do it under the table


If you incorporate the failure bow,  you are not glorifying failure - but rewarding the transparency, being accountable, being in the present, and paving the way to innovation.
