The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality overcomes everything. – George Lois
What is creativity? Creativity comes from an original thought and takes the shape of seeing Beauty in a new way, expressing Truth as no one else has and experiencing Goodness in unique ways.
How can one be creative? By not being a slave to habit; especially not a slave to habitual thinking.
What’s the way out? See things and people as they are, don’t paint it/them by brushes of thought you’ve always thought about it/them. See it new, see them afresh. Don’t let your habitual thoughts define the rest of your life, be creative instead!
