Creativity doesn’t come from doing what you’re supposed to diligently (that’s discipline). No. Creativity comes from trying things we’re not supposed to, from not using those ticking seconds efficiently, from avoiding work, from adding fun to a boring task, and from the mind that says to itself, “Wouldn’t it be funny if…”
And what other time is this not more apparent than when we’re procrastinating and wasting time?
Creativity is the residue of time wasted.
The creative being is at first, a horrible user of time; a time-waster.
