Creativity

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Creativity
“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things.” ~ Steve Jobs
When you remember similarities, notice relationships, imagine possibilities and are willing to experiment - then one thing leads to another.
“If you hear a voice within you say, 'You cannot paint', then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh
Ray Bradbury said, "Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things."
“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” ~ Scott Adams
Joseph Chilton Pearce: "To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong." And as Abe Tannenbaum said, "The creative person is willing to live with ambiguity. He doesn't need problems solved immediately and can afford to wait for the right ideas."
“The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.” ~ Dee Hock
As Maya Angelou said, "You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have." Creating is the true essence of life.
“Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can't get there by bus, only by hard work, risking, and by not quite knowing what you're doing. What you'll discover will be wonderful: yourself.” ~ Alan Alda
Tina Turner said, "Sometimes you've got to let everything go - purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything - whatever is bringing you down - get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out." To be more creative let go of fixed ideas, question assumptions, make all beliefs provisional, look in new directions...

How to Ignite your Ultimate Creative Capacity ~ by Jafree Ozwald

The mind is naturally creative. It is always generating thoughts in every moment of our lives. Whether these ideas are new revolutionary self realized thoughts, enlightening 'million dollar' ideas, or mundane complaints about the neighbor next door, the creativity in your thinking is always available. The results you get all depends on whether the gateway to your ultimate creative capacity is fully fresh and open, or operating out of a past program. Most people believe that there are only a few gifted creative individuals born in this world, while the rest of us unlucky folks tend not to be so creatively endowed. The truth I've found is much more empowering and radical. I've discovered a technique that your average human being can access a limitless resource of creative juice that will fuel them forever, helping them to access the power they need to manifest anything their heart desires.
