As a kid I used to torch my plastic toy soldiers. The joy of being an adult is you can melt your plastic soldiers in your kitchen bowls and call it art… plus charge $200+.
In business let’s not confuse being creative with being allowed to make mistakes. Being creative means blowing things up and doing the sort of stuff that would get you in trouble with your parents.
The problem is most employees don’t want to be the ones getting caught holding the flame to the toy soldiers in the corporate salad bowl. They are too worried about losing or costing the company money… artists, on the other hand, do this stuff because they want to make money.
Every business needs artists.
