"Most people would rather be unhappy than uncertain"

Most people would rather be unhappy than uncertain - Filmmaker Erik Proulx in a recent PassionHit video.

That quote also reminded me strongly of Jonathan Fields' belief that a willingness "to live in the question" is the mark of the creative life. What every sculptor, theoretical physicist and entrepreneur knows is that a little discomfort goes a long way toward alternative thinking - the secret is a tolerance for ambiguity and a determination to be still long enough to understand what the disquiet is saying. I know it's been true in my life.

I bet that it's been true for you as well.

Proulx is the filmmaker behind the "Lemonade: Detroit," above, which movingly chronicles the changes a group of people in Detroit have made amidst massive uncertainty. Watch. Thanks for sharing CC!
