I love being wrong, and am very adept at it. But not in a restrictive or counter-productive way; I often find that the best ideas come from a tangent of being wrong. When you only look for the most-correct answer, you find yourself, more often than not, on a path that doesn't allow for a whole lot of creativity. But when you set out looking for bad ideas, the whole world is open to you. There's obviously no end to bad ideas, but they often point you in the most-correct direction in a surprisingly direct way that ends up being a lot more fun and less stressful!

My Dream Job is Producing Videos or Film full time. I like being the person who, if I do my job right, will seem like they're doing nothing at all.
