Do you want to think more creatively? Then stop thinking so much about what other people would think.
The most compelling creative ideas will resonate deeply with some people, and they will offend other people. It’s pretty much impossible to have one without the other.
Your best choice is to base your creativity on what is true, useful, and authentic to you. Let others shoulder full responsibility for what it means to them.
What will other people think? They will think what they think, regardless of how much or how little you anticipate it or try to influence it.
Boldly express who you are, how you feel, what you believe. Offer sincere value, and allow it to be accepted as it will be accepted.
Put your focus on creating according to your highest and best impulses. Confidently know that it’s okay for everyone else to make of it what they will.
