"No pain, no gain."

Scott Adams makes some astute observations regarding creativity. An excerpt:

“The media has often noted the correlation between genius and insanity. My hypothesis is that insanity, or insecurity of any sort, puts an individual in a continuous state of feeling threatened. For those folks, the creativity gene – if they are lucky enough to have it – is locked in the ON position as they reflexively search for an escape from discomfort.”

I agree. I’ve done some of what I consider my best blogging when I’m having a bad day. This may not be true for everyone, but I think Adams is on the right track here.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
