Solitude is important
This is a must watch TED talk. I don't feel like I want to say much about this, as I think Susan Cain sums it all up pretty well. I do want to acknowledge that I identify with the idea that creativity comes from solitude and we mustn't forget about this power. I like the notion that there is nothing wrong with bringing wisdom back to the community, and then collaborate.
One of the most powerful questions to come out of this, for me, at this moment, is, 'Why are we making children feel guilty about their desire to work alone?'
I feel this is one of those presentations I will watch over and over again.
