It’s no secret that inspiration has a will of its own.

It always seems to hit us at the most awkward possible time, often right when we’re in the middle of something. We must be willing to surrender to inspiration when it comes calling. That might mean dropping what we’re doing and changing plans at the last minute.

If designers and researchers do not sometimes fail, it is a sign that they are not trying hard enough—they are not thinking the great creative thoughts that will provide breakthroughs in how we do things. It is possible to avoid failure, to always be safe. But that is also the route to a dull, uninteresting life.
