Creativity is a lot like Brazilian Ju-Jitsu

To be successful in Ju-Jitsu, you need to force yourself to become comfortable in uncomfortable situations. While rolling, fear will make you do stupid things and it opens the door to bad decisions. When you start feeling uncomfortable and afraid, you use that as fuel to keep going.

In Ju-Jitsu, you’ll frequently find yourself in a position feeling trapped or stuck and you’ll want to go with your first instinct to get out of it. If you go with your first instinct you’re probably going to stay stuck.

The only way to get out of being trapped is by finding a second right answer, with a move no one is expecting.
