For many, given the choice to follow the step-by-step instructions to make a really cool Lego sculptor or to go make something their own–most would be terrified of the prospect of making something that isn’t found in the manual.

“What if I fail?”

“What if people judge me? ”

In fact, our culture has worked overtime to praise the compliant cog worker that followed the specs. I mean, look it’s an X-Wing Fighter, that is much “better” than the thing you tried to create.

You will always find a Dummies Guide or a How To book on what to do next. But the real artist, the courageous impresario that we can’t live without, ignores the instructions, makes a ruckus just sees what happens next.

The world needs more people like you to throw away the instructions. Aren’t you at least curious to see what you could build?
