How to Kill Creativity

Daphne Gray-Grant has a nice list of 5 things you should do if you want to smother creativity before it can draw a single breath. (And if you don’t want to kill creativity, I assume that you’re clever enough to do the opposite of the things in her list.)

Here’s her list:

  1. Know exactly what you’re doing before you get started.
  2. Be careful not to offend.
  3. Get permission.
  4. Run it by everyone first.
  5. Criticize yourself at every step.
