It’s tempting to believe that creativity comes from starting fresh. But even when we start fresh, we approach projects and problems with self-created boundaries.

Creative people often excel because they change the shape of the clean sheet.
I was fortunate to have lunch with a Senior Real Estate Agent in Portland, Oregon last week.
