I like what I am reading:
“As a scientist, when I do an experiment that doesn't work as I expected, what do I call it? Data.
It’s not a failure.
In fact, some of the most interesting scientific research comes from experiments that have unexpected results.
The key is to look at the things that don’t come out as expected as data that provides interesting clues to what is really happening.
If you are afraid of failure, you won’t try anything new.”

Here's a nice graphic rendition of the Escher-like creativity model, 'The Innovation Engine', conceived by Prof Tina Seeling by Dilip Mukerjea.
