A Radical Creative Technique

QuantitiesDo you suffer from procrastination and perfectionism? Set your creative goals around great quantities with a radical lack of perfection.

Make something lame, make something plain, make something dull and unoriginal.

Just make tons of it.

See just how many pieces of creative work you can produce that are absolute crap.

That’s your goal -- enormous numbers (masses) of some kind of creative failure.

If you think you can manage it, fail miserably. Just make sure you fail a lot.

Odds are -- you'll fail at the failing once or twice and accidentally create something fantastic.
