Make some mistakes in 2013

With a new year comes a new start in our work and personal lives. I start to think about new projects and sources of inspiration. Found this great quote via writer Neil Gaiman’s tumblr page. He writes a ‘wish’ every New Year’s and this one from last year struck me. I urge us all to take more risks in your work…and make mistakes too!

And for this year, my wish for each of us is small and very simple.

And it’s this.
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.
