Laurie Rosenwald had a great article in the CA Interactive Annual called “How to Make Mistakes on Purpose.”
She writes, “I don’t focus on a problem to solve it. I do something careless, pointless, opposite, random. Something that has nothing to do with what you’re doing or wanting.”
Because “if I’m not surprising myself…I’m boring you” she says she doesn’t “want to just accept my mistakes. I want to make mistakes on purpose.”
It’s a great article. Pick up an issue and check it out.
