Most of us fear failure, especially in public settings, and this fear of failure can have a negative impact on our ability to be creative. However, being innovative involves taking risks, and where there is risk, there is also the possibility of failure.
Anyone who’s created something original will tell you: failure is an essential part of being creative. Of course it’s not failure itself that leads to the creation of something new, it’s how you deal with failure. The important factor in turning failure into success is the ability to learn from it and not to give up.
One feature of creative thinking is the will to improve, and in order to improve, you must be able to recognise and learn from mistakes. Many artists are obsessed with creating the perfect artwork and are very critical of their own work. They might constantly try to improve it, even if it means coming back to an idea weeks, months or even years later.
Their idea might evolve so that they end up with something completely different from what they originally conceived.In the world of business startups, the idea of pivoting comes from this ability to learn from what looks like failure and make it into something new. A classic example of a business pivot is YouTube.It was originally designed as an online dating website to help people find partners, but nobody was creating the kind of personal profile they expected. So instead, it became one of the world’s largest video resources of user-generated content.
Some innovative companies try to make space for creativity and risk by giving their employees personal-project time, during which they can work on any project they want and experiment without the expectation that the time will end in a product. These projects have in many cases developed into very successful and innovative ideas. For example, Twitter was a side project because people were given the space to fail, to learn and to develop.
In order to be creative, we must overcome our fear of failure. So often our creative ideas are thought of as risky and so instead, we choose the safer route. But safe work is rarely creative work or the work we are most passionate about, and without passion and motivation, we are unlikely to produce anything really original and creative. So, as a creative thinker, you need to take risks with your ideas, be willing to make mistakes, view every failure as a chance to learn and don’t give up!!!
