Kim Miles at work

"The creative process necessitates giving up normal logic.

Have to be in a trial and error state where unlikely connections can be made.

Creativity occurs when things that don’t seem to go together make something new when joined.

The illogical conclusion……that’s what we want …….surprising /unexpected /stimulating."
