Is Grit Stifling Our Creativity?

Stressed out, relentless, martyrdom is often viewed as part and parcel of success. From the sleepless persona of the Tech entrepreneurs, to the ubiquitous chatter around “grit,” tenacity has become synonymous with achievement. Yet, new emergent research is illustrating that perhaps dogged determination has been glamorized far beyond its usefulness.

Stifling Creativity

I have been a dancer since I was three years old. When I finally graduated to pointe shoes at the age of ten, I was thrilled. Pointe shoes were notorious for their pain and so naturally, were associated with everything badass and superstar.
I displayed my newly blistered and bloody toes to anyone who would look (sorry friends and family).
It was confirmed. I was the real deal.

Success hurts. Progress takes blood.

These ideas seemed obvious, almost mathematical in their simplicity to my ten-year-old mind. “No pain no gain.”
But does it? Does success always necessitate pain?

We are conditioned to endure, to soldier on, to suck it up. Yet, the research on innovation, creativity, and insight paints a more complex picture. Obsessive overwork– the ballet dancer who dances well past the limits of her bloody feet–may lead to a deficit in the quality of the result, not an increase.

It’s undeniable that grit, sweat, and hard work are core components of expertise. It would clearly be overly simplistic and inaccurate to dismiss their linchpin role. However overworking undermines our success in three major ways: creativity, problem solving and social connection.

Bill Murray’s Bachelor Party Speech

Bill Murray decided to give an impromptu one when he crashed a bachelor party in South Carolina.

Speaking about relationships and after you think you found “the one”.

Take that person and travel around the world, Buy a plane ticket for the two of you to travel all around the world, and go to places that are hard to go to and hard to get out of. And if when you come back to JFK, when you land in JFK, and you’re still in love with that person, get married at the airport.

Sounds like an interesting plot for a movie: The story behind this and the full video:

Over Memorial Day weekend, 20 of my buddies from Boston College got together in Charleston for our friend EJ’s bachelor party. At one point during dinner at a steakhouse, one guy goes to the bathroom downstairs and sees Bill Murray sitting with some people with a fishing vest on. We talked to the waiter to see if we could send him some drinks, to which Bill declined. One of my buddies then went down and asked if he’d come up and say a few words for EJ and got a “No thanks.” My buddy comes back up dejected and tells us it’s not going to happen. Two minutes later, Bill f—ing Murray walks into the room and gives this speech.
