Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties. Erich Fromm (Interview) 

2 comments on creativity.

  1. Don’t think you’re not creative. Any thing that’s beautiful or good that you do in your own unique way, whether it’s a piece of art or the artful way you converse or understand others, is being creative. Most of us, knowingly or unknowingly convince ourselves that we’re not creative, the truth is quite the opposite, give yourself some credit!
  2. You can be more creative. When you stay more in the moment (not overcome by your mind chatter), being playful and are not ruled by your biases and expectations. Our biases, expectations, assumptions and certainties about anything limits us, which limits our creativity.
