Never let success get in the way of your creativity.

Do what you love. It will lead you to where you want to go

When brainstorming, we generate ideas to solve problems—or conceive of something entirely new. Once an idea is posed, it is played with and expanded upon without limits. Each question and extrapolation gives rise to alternative and tangential ideas. An intoxicating creative exchange commences that often leads to unexpected places.
But the harsh reality is that brainstorming session often yield disappointing results. Ideas with great potential fade from the participants’ minds with each additional idea thrown into the mix. Strong possibilities are trumped by alternative—not necessarily better—possibilities. Ultimately, we surrender to the clock, our take-away being the last idea mentioned or the consensus idea—a watered-down version of an early idea that kept coming up again and again. We go back to our desks with a mishmash of notes and sketches, often with no sense of who should do that, what happens when, and what else needs to be researched or discussed before action can be taken.
