Critics Know The Way But Can't Drive The Car

I was talking to someone today who mentioned our whole education system is set up to teach us how to crticise. "Look at this thing that someone else created. Now talk about it." So it's no wonder that folks feel so free in passing their opinion on stuff that other people do or say. It's inculcated at an early age.

We're taught how to critique but rarely encouraged to create, let alone taught how to be creative. Creative people, the ones who make us all go, "Wow, look at that, isn't that amazing," have the ability to ignore the myriad critical opinions that get thrown at them like so much loose change at a busker. They just remain calm, disregard the ceaseless jabbering and half-a$$ed analysis, and push through their vision.

I love those guys.
