“Creative people don’t make mistakes. We make discoveries.”
I heard that quote at a hair convention years ago. I was there with my wife, who is a Paul Mitchell stylist.
The speaker was right. Great ideas often originate in unexpected places.
I like to think I’m creative. I’m also a creature of habit. One such habit: coffee at exactly 10:00 every morning.
Last Wednesday at 10:00, I went to the brewer and did what I always do: pump some vanilla creamer into a cup, place the cup in the machine, load a pod and wait.
When I pulled the cup out, the coffee was a funny color.
On tasting it, I knew instantly this wasn’t my normal blend—but it wasn’t bad. I actually liked it.
