It’s happened to every one of us — we present something we’ve created to someone whose opinion matters to us and hear “that’s not very good” or “oh. That’s nice” in the condescending voice we all know and hate to so much.
I’ve found another Ted Talk by David Kelley about the process of being creative, even after we’ve been told we’re not.
Please keep it in mind the next time you’re told something that tries to shut your creativity down. Because we are all creative, in our own ways. Every single one of us.
