The Perils of Plans: Why Creativity Requires Leaping into the Unknown ~ Brain Pickings

The Perils of Plans: Why Creativity Requires Leaping into the Unknown ~ Brain Pickings | Worth Reading | Scoop.it

by Maria Popova

 

“Allow yourself the uncomfortable luxury of changing your mind,” I offered in one of my 7 lessons from 7 years of Brain Pickings. Indeed, nothing stunts growth more powerfully than our attachment to the familiar, our blind adherence to predetermined plans, and our inability to, as Rilke famously put it, “live the questions.” Keats termed the willingness to embrace uncertainty, live with mystery, and make peace with ambiguity“negative capability” and argued that it’s essential to the creative process; Anaïs Nin believed thatinviting the unknown helps us live more richly, and even psychologists confirm that embracing uncertainty is essential to creativity. And yet we cling so vigorously to our comfort zones, our plans, our knowns — why?

 

"That’s the pattern Dani Shapiro seeks to decondition in Still Writing (public library) — her magnificent memoir, which previously gave us her wisdom on the pleasures and perils of the creative life. "
