The Secret To Creativity, Intelligence, And Scientific Thinking 

Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something.

That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people.

- Steve Jobs

Paul Higgins: Can also be a trap because that experience locks you in to a certain set of mental models that look for certain patterns and therefore always move in certain directions despite the reality you face

Awwww, but to which is right? And when?
