A while back, I asked if any one could identify a quote that I had scribbled down. I’d forgotten where I’d gotten it from. The quote was:
“Some of the best inventive moments were born out of ‘wrong thinking.’ Most people start with the right way so they all follow the same path. The wrong way will lead to mistakes from which you can learn and create new discoveries – the kind of original ideas that come to life when we dare to be different, keep an open mind and have no fear of failure.”
Well, I got my answer. I was surprised when I found out both who said and where I lifted it from. The author is someone who makes things that suck. LIterally, not figuratively. Best of all, it came from a coffee cup. A Starbucks coffee cup, no less.
We now are in possession of the cup and “The Way I See it #157″ and we proudly brew “wrong thinking” around here daily.
