Hello, and welcome to my first blog post.
This blog is a resource for all creative individuals. A place to learn, be inspired and share your creative endeavors.
I’ll share what inspires me to create, discuss what I’ve learned, and tell you books I’m reading, projects I’m working on, and hopefully motivate you to also become a creator or create more.
So if this is a resource for the creatives: ” Who are they?”
Who are the Creative People?
To me, creative people are just a bunch of people who have a passion for creating awesome things from ordinary stuff. They are people who enjoy the process maybe much more than the thing they eventually create.
I’m a member of a creativity group on LinkedIn and the question – “what is creativity?” has been an ongoing discussion for the longest time.
What is Creativity?
My answer to that is: creativity is playful work. Creativity involves hard work, fun and awesome outcomes. So anyone who works hard at something unique and still has a lot of fun doing it is most likely being creative at what they do.
Creativity is playful work.
Whether you combine unlikely ingredients in a cooking pot to make a sumptuous meal for dinner or photograph an object from an awkward angle with unconventional lighting to produce stellar results, you are a creative.
Similarly, if you design the electronic circuitry in a device or plan the most efficient transportation system or find ways of helping patients stay in their homes and yet receive world-class health care, you too are a creative.
