Life is like a kaleidoscope

“Life is like an ever-shifting kaleidoscope – a slight change, and all patterns alter.”

Conformity blocks creative thinking

“Our minds have been trained from childhood to think in lockstep and conformity. Our school systems automated us to sit in straight rows; color within the lines; and respond with sequential, one-dimensional, regurgitated answers. We were taught to take all our wonderful, multidimensional answers and to narrow them down in search of only one right answer. Ultimately, our analytical systems blocked our natural paths to creative thinking. In a sense, we were trained to become creatively constipated.”
