Too much perfectionism in our culture results in generation after generation of people who are too afraid of making mistakes to create anything original, says the creativity guru Laurie Rosenwald in this fast-moving audio. She narrates with exuberance and dramatic flair that occasionally upstage her message--but she sounds so sincere that her likable vocal personality overcomes the dramatic overreach. Citing numerous examples of mistakes that became wondrous innovations, she references a wide range of colorful figures such as Orson Welles and Miles Davis. Her challenge that listeners should make more mistakes has audible power. By loosening our standards and striving to be more contrarian, she says, we can break the monotony of our cookie-cutter lives and give birth to something truly original.
