I am reminded of reading in Art and Fear (great book) about a study that wan done with pottery students. One group was told to make as many pots as possible - they were to be graded on output alone. The other group was told they would be graded on a single pot, the very best. In essence, being told to make the perfect pot. The evaluators in the study decided that the first group made the better pots. So make more songs!
