Fail

And fail hard.

If we’re carving new paths and taking creative risks then we’re going to fall flat on our face. We can’t prevent it. Organizing and making plans is important, yes. But holding off on making decisions because you’re afraid of failure is useless. Even the most organized paths are met with obstacles and mistakes. Failure is inevitable. If you choose the meticulous path, and plan plan plan before you actually do anything, then you’re just going to fail slower, and those who took risks are going to be failing, learning, and growing.

Creativity and failure go hand in hand. Learn to embrace it. Understand that a failure with a creative choice is a not a failure with you as a human. Don’t take it personally. It just didn’t work out. Brush yourself off, take the core elements that still ring true to you, and move on.
