Created to Create
Some people embrace their creative birthright, while others suppress it and say they’re not a “creative type.” I believe we’re all creative—we all can make. Sure, there are varying levels of creative prowess, but mostly, the difference between “creative types” and others is their understanding of creative principles and commitment to do the work, day after day, until they achieve status amongst the artistic elite. Creativity is like a muscle, if you don’t work it, it'll atrophy, and you’ll lose it.
If you’ve ever told anyone you’re not the creative type, I highly recommend Creative Courage by Tom Kelley & David Kelley. The book proposes that each and every one of us is creative. It identifies strategies that allow us to tap into our creative potential at work, and in our personal lives. This book will teach you how to stretch and work your creative muscles, so you never need to say "I'm not creative again." Disclaimer: Affiliate links are used in this post.
