An excerpt from something I read, that now sits above my desk scribbled on a fluorescent pink post-it:

“Creativity always comes as a surprise to us, therefore we can never count on it and we dare not believe in it until it has happened. In other words, we would not consciously engage upon tasks whose success clearly requires that creativity be forth coming. Hence, the only way in which we can bring our creative recourse fully into play is by misjudging the nature of the task by persecuting it to ourselves as a more routine, simple, undemanding of genuine creativity than it will turn out to be.” – Hirschmann
