If you're not prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original.
Whether or not you discover your talents and passions is partly a matter of opportunity. If you've never been sailing, or picked up an instrument, or tried to teach or to write fiction, how would you know if you had a talent for these things?

Creativity is the process of having original ideas that have value. It is a process; it's not random.

The role of a creative leader is not to have all the ideas; it's to create a culture where everyone can have ideas and feel that they're valued.
Creativity is putting your imagination to work, and it's produced the most extraordinary results in human culture.
