You wake up in a sudden chill because you come to a stark realization—you’re not creative. Your smart, you read, you learn stuff, but you don’t create. Don’t worry, there’s hope.
They say creativity is going to be an important 21st-century skill. It’s an art and science (sort of).
Why be more creative? Because creativity gives you more options when you need them. You experience more freedom when you know you can creatively get your way out of a jam.
It starts with a curiosity which doesn’t come naturally to everyone. Here’s why. Being curious means being ignorant–for a little while. But there is a flipside.
Being curious conveys confidence because you let it be known you want to add knowledge and information to your war chest of wisdom.
The master says: “I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.”
― Albert Einstein
So how does curiosity lead to creativity? Being curious makes space for creativity to surface. At Guitarmanifesto.com, creativity surfaces through learning guitar. But for you, define what creativity means in your life.
Once you define it, then move with intention. Intention acts like a spear that you point at some problem using creativity. Now, that sudden chill rolling up your arms are goosebumps because you made something new!
