“We don’t grow into creativity, we grow out of it.
Or rather, we get educated out of it. Schools kill creativity.”
— Ken Robinson
There are two ways to live: grow or don’t grow. If you don’t grow, then things don’t change and you’re surrounded by the same situations. This sounds boring, but it’s what must of us aspire to: the good life, comfortable and secure.
If you grow, then you either have to find a path or make one. We ask, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” referring to a roster of prefabricated identities. It’s only half a joke because we’re all a little nervous about our future.
