Stop, Collaborate, and Listen
"Stop, Collaborate, and Listen" is more than just a Vanilla Ice lyric. It's also a great approach to collaborating with a creative partner.
STOP: Take time to figure out what your skill set and vision entail, as well as your weaknesses. Use this information to search for your Missing Piece (aka your creative partner).
COLLABORATE: An ideal creative partner has a vision that matches yours in addition to a skill set that complements your own. Your Missing Piece could be right in front of you! When you find this person, develop clear goals and set objectives together.
LISTEN: Learn how to trust and listen to your creative partner. Divide and conquer your work. Make stuff happen! After all, in the words of Helen Keller, "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."
