being wrong

Excerpt from the book "The Element" by Sir Ken Robinson

When they are very young, kids aren't particularly worried about being wrong. If they aren't sure what to do in a particular situation, they'll just have a go at it and see how things turn out. This is not to suggest that being wrong is the same thing as being creative. Sometimes being wrong is just being wrong. What is true is that if you're not prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original.

And how many of us do not worry about being wrong? People tend to move themselves in the comfort of looking good or hiding behind their own faces most of the times. How do we expect something original to happen if such is the case. And we never realize that we were not like this during our childhood. We used have so much confidence and courage that every act would end up a brave act. Now we chicken out fearing for being wrong.
