The power of creative partnerships

Published 12 months ago • 1 min read

Creative collaboration is key to unlocking our true potential.

A partner can complement our skill set, challenge our views, and expand our horizons.

Creative partnerships are everywhere.

I watched the Howard Documentary and saw the pairing of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman at work. Their collaboration on The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Alladin speaks for itself.

Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky were two friends who changed the way we think about how we think.

Marie and Pierre Curie did pioneering work in physics and chemistry.

The list of powerful duos goes on: Simon & Garfunkel, Oprah Winfrey & Gayle King, Paul Allen & Bill Gates...

Have a good week!

Take a moment to think about your habits. Why do you act the way you do? Psychology offers three explanations: Learning by association (classical conditioning): ​Some things we don't need to learn. They're "hard-wired" into our system from birth; we pair a stimulus (e.g. a loud noise) with a response (fear). This learning is often unconscious and happens quickly. Check out Pavlov's dogs if you're curious to learn more. Learning by consequences (reinforcements/punishments): ​Some things...
