Creative Productivity

Creative Productivity

Quality is a probabilistic function of quantity, meaning that when a creative makes the most attempts, there will be hits and misses.

Many creatives such as Thomas Edison had done prominent work even before he created the incandescent lightbulb. Consider also Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s 600 compositions and Pablo Picasso’s 10,000 paintings.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

There are three ways to further our creativity into our lives:

  1. Do something without caring about the results - this is to help lower our expectations and to loosen ourselves up and reduce the internal pressure we have on ourselves
  2. Set and meet a quota - to make something in an environment when you are most comfortable and set a structure for practice and development
  3. Make it the best part of your day - being mindful that there is no right way to approach creativity and to do what works for us

Creative people are creative, not as a result of any particular inborn trait, rather, but rather through an attitude toward life. They habitually respond to problems in fresh and novel ways, rather than allowing themselves to respond mindlessly and automatically.

“We are made to create. We feel useful when we create. We release our ‘stuckness’ when we create. We reinvent our lives, tell new stories, and rebuild communities when we create. We reclaim our esteem, our muse, and our hope when we create.”
