Mantra - Be Obvious

To catalyze creativity, collaboration, and communication, some calming attitudes:

Be Obvious!

... and

Be Positive!

... and

Don't Do
Your Best!

... so Zen — not-try, not-do — from Keith Johnstone's Impro and Impro for Storytellers:

... I encourage negative people to be positive, and clever people to be obvious, and anxious people not to do their best. ...
