We are taught in so many ways to judge things, to judge people, to judge circumstances...to judge.
From some imaginary position of perfection we assess others as if they were lacking some essential ingredient.
Or, in some cases, we let judgment of our own skills keep us from trying something new, from forging new ground, from creating.
That's a mistake. We need creativity. We need to try new things. We need to explore territory where we won't be instantly criticized, by ourselves or others.
High performance leaders value creativity so much that they suspend their sense of judgment often enough to allow creativity to flourish.
How about you? Can you allow creativity to flourish? To grow? To blossom?
We are more creative when we are less judgmental. Send your inner judge out for milk and cookies. It will make her happy and you'll be free.
