The Hidden Power of Unpreparedness

“Commit yourself to being unprepared.” This is Susan Orlean’s favorite piece of advice to share with aspiring creators. In this Knowable course inspired by her storied career as a journalist and author, Orlean teaches her creative framework that defies convention by embracing uncertainty and “unlearning.” No matter your chosen field, this course helps you to think differently, create more confidently, and master your skills of observation. By resisting the temptation to over-prepare, you can eliminate harmful cognitive biases from your creative process and form more meaningful, authentic connections to your work.
