  • Creativity, motivation, and failing well … Twyla Tharp

    I have to thank Merlin Mann for this. If you don’t know his blog 43 Folders, check it out. I stumbled on this little 3 minute treasure quite by accident, thanks to being a Merlin devotee. Over the past few years, he has sent me off on small quests that have enriched my thinking on…
