You may have noticed that I’ve taken some time off from this blog. I’ve decided to take it in a new direction, an exploration of creativity. We are all creative, but so many of us have learned to hide it. Ridicule, ignorance, a lack of respect, and a lack of stimulus form the barriers that we hide from. Together we will break down those barriers to discover what it takes to be creative and how we can incorporate it into our lives.
From the big ideas of the most outrageously creative minds today to my neighbors down the street, I will be sharing their ideas with you and what it means to be creative. Ordinary people are achieving extraordinary creativity. Extraordinarily creative people are pushing the limits. How can we harness this energy to make our lives and world better? We will explore this too.
I took a survey in my house the other day. I asked, “What does creativity mean?” Here are the answers:
“Using your mind to solve a problem in an unconventional way.”
“Making connections where there were none before.”
“Different from the usual things that you experience.”
“Helping your mind expand to have newer and better ideas than before.”
What is your definition of creativity?
