  1. What about Jazz musicians jamming together?

  2. I see “Jazz musicians jamming together” more as an end product. The individual work is the type of “creative work” that the musicians spent years on, in order to be able to jam.

  3. I could not agree more. I’m in the middle of reading Quiet by Susan Cain and I relate to it so much. It argues this same point, with examples of famous people.
