“Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.” – Voltaire

Feeling certain can be a large burden for creative endeavors.

The inventor who goes out in search of what he is confident to be an ideal, perfect machine, is doomed for failure. By being married to his vision of what his invention should be, he doesn’t see the better solution just around the edges.

We can see this problem almost every day. We all settle into ideas because we’re so sure they’ll work, and when they don’t work we keep pushing on them, spending countless hours to try and fit our square peg of an idea into the round hole of a goal.

Instead, our creative process should be the opposite. We shouldn’t be married to ideas, we should instead be married to goals, visions, and purposes.

If your purpose is to create artwork that inspires, creating art using only crayons may not be the best way to go about it. If your vision is to be the best improv actor this side of the globe, you can’t be married to the idea that opening your own theater is the way to get there. This is important because wasting your time on an idea that isn’t working is just that: a waste of time. Pursuing ideas that aren’t right means you’re wasting time that you could otherwise be devoting to the right efforts.

Being married to an idea is an efficient way to waste energy and resources.

It’s natural to pursue certainty, but it’s unnatural to align that certainty to mere ideas. Instead, be open to the fact that your ideas may not be the best, that there may be a better solution waiting for you to discover it. Instead of defining yourself by your ideas, define yourself by your goals and vision.

Creative insights often hide here, just outside where we’re so certain they are.

Absolutely love this post, CreativeSomething is easily becoming one of my favorite blogs! I found this to be so true especially when making documentary-type films. A lot of time when you go about making a doc you have an idea set in your mind beforehand what story you want to tell…but then you start filming and things change and your story evolves. If you try to hold onto, or be “married” as the article says, to your original “idea”, the story that needs to be told will be ruined.

Jason and I experienced this a lot in South Africa filming for the inFocus series. We would go into a week with a set idea of what we wanted, but God had different plans… Sometimes it even took loosing footage completely to redirect our story. In the case of the first doc (the next two are coming soon…I promise) that is what happened.

Jason and I went a whole day of filming and we were literally high-fiving each other at the end of the day because of how epic (or so we thought) the stuff we captured that day was! I plugged in our cards to dump our footage, and my stomach just turned as nothing showed up; all the footage was gone. It hit us really hard because there was no way we could go back and re-film what we had, and even if we could, it would never be the same. The next day we took the first half of the day off to regather our thoughts and brainstorm/pray about a new direction to the piece. What seemed like the worst possible thing that could have happened ended up turning into a miracle; God gave us new direction and inspiration for the piece, and what came out was a completely different story than what we had originally “planned” for. That being said, don’t hold onto or be “married” your ideas too tightly, especially when you are in a creative field. Let your ideas evolve as time goes. Sometimes when shooting a documentary you just need to film a ton, film EVERYTHING, then let the story come out in the edit bay. The story will tell itself, we just need to give it the freedom to do so.
