The greatest lever we have is strategically employed creativity.  Creativity allows for leaps of methodology that reduce effort and overcome obstacles.  But in order to be effective, creativity must be buttressed with the basics:  meticulousness, discipline, and willingness to account for data and evidence, no matter how contrary or strange it may appear.

    • From my experience, it’s like a muscle; the more you use it, the stronger it gets. If I encounter a creative block, I read authors I like, and start saying “what if?” creating new premises in my head. The seminal work “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield, along with a host of other creative types, also support this approach to creativity: the artist should discipline themselves to create, even if it’s bad, for bad material can be edited, no material cannot.

  1. Indeed I find that a certain time and place and habits, all regular things, settle the part of me that needs structure so that the rest of me can roam the creative landscape in search of what’s next 😊
