Creative collaboration requires that we lose our sense of self-centered creativity.
This is a major struggle for very many artistic types. Perhaps we think of this as protecting what is most valuable to us, but in truth there is a type of self-absorption that alienates others and limits our own creativity.
We cannot be precious about our work if we wish to grow creatively.
There is exponential creative power waiting to be harnessed in the collaborative process.
This fear of creative collaboration has killed me for long enough. How about you?
