On creativity..........................

“What is the biggest obstacle to creativity? Attachment to outcome. As soon as you become attached to a specific outcome, you feel compelled to control and manipulate what you're doing and in the process you shut yourself off to other possibilities. Creativity is not just about succeeding. It's about experimenting and discovering.” 

-Gordon MacKenzie, as borrowed from Orbiting the Giant Hairball:  A Corporate Fool's Guide to Surviving with Grace
