Not Right

It probably bears repeating—repeatedly—that it’s no big deal to be wrong. It’s how we learn, how we have eureka moments. Something is off, results are unexpected, and we need to find the right answer. But the answer isn’t necessarily the important thing. As John Kounios says at the link above,

For sure, it’s fun to be right and to know things. It’s just not always good for making art. Being wrong more is a better goal than being the best or striving for perfection. The cracks we fall in between the answers might lead us to an entirely new path. We are seekers, and not so often finders.
