To cultivate habits or to wander around in perpetual escapes from habits. Both routes seem to have their uses.
To escape a habit one may sometimes find a habit that takes you away from all habit seeking methods.
To appear stupid is not to be frowned upon. Because to be ignorant and childlike is a prerogative for the creative mindset.
To be creative is to think of connections and patterns in ways that those who are intelligent in a convergent way cannot think.
Yet those with a divergent thinking cannot see some of the order in a given pattern which might be one well known of among the convergent minds.
The magic really happens when you can combine the two paths at will and adapt to the one way that is useful as needed at the time.
