Had to share this blog post about creativity and the myths that surround it: Myths about Creativity | Tickled By Life, by Shalu Wasu.
Go have a read… then come back here if you like. 🙂
I particularly enjoyed reading his attitudes about the application of creativity to all aspects of life, not just so-called creative jobs:
“To be alive is to be creative and to be creative is to be alive”.
I’m constantly grateful that my work insists on creativity as a pre-requisite, but do I apply it to other aspects of my life?
Hmm… my schedule is certainly very creatively arranged at times! Perhaps I could be more creative when performing music that I’ve played many times before, instead of going through some of the same habitual motions of bowing patterns and vibrato. How could I be more creative with my relationships with other people? Or with the structure of my day? With how I engage with the world?
