Been a while since I shared my thoughts here, recently got inspired, yay feels good!
As a creator, I am always looking for inspiration and Youtube is a great source for this topic. I follow a channel on Youtube called "Tested" started by Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman from the TV show "Mythbusters" Adam employs a group of tech savey folk who talk about technology, making, film, and whatever else interests them. Below is the video, check it out if you like or maybe youve already seen it.
Here is my two cents on the topic.
Creativity often requires perseverance in the face of adversity, being vigilant and patient is all based on passion and dedication. It's part of using critical thinking to solve problems. We all have a container of techniques and experiences to draw from. Methods provide a way to be productive with processes. Sometimes with methods an the order of operations (as Mr. Savage mentions) can get mixed up and things can get messy.
I like to say,
"It's often not the situation but the way we act in a given situation that counts."
Stuff happens, we can only do our best and make the best with what we have at the time.
