How Being Different Pumps up Your Creativity

The works must be conceived with fire in the soul but executed with clinical coolness. Joan Miró

Everyday Creativity is an integral part of our lives — it doesn’t matter if you recognise it as a creative process, or act, or not, creativity is when we do something that can be noted as a mark of originality, or uniqueness for ourselves.

Creativity is an emotional drive that gives our actions meaning.

Writers, artists, musicians, and chefs might agree that too much intellectual input about a creative task can destroy the potential of anything creative happening.

A few days ago, I made scones. I had friends waiting in the front room, keeping themselves busy with conversations about life, I got busy and started to make my scones.

I did everything right. My ingredients were perfectly weighed out, I was careful with mixing and made sure that I had a good consistency to the dough. But, when I started to blob portions of dough onto a baking tray, they just collapsed into sad little splodges.

Cooking, making art, music, and figuring out difficult life problems, these are all open to the creative process.

Our lives are being dominated by machines that can figure things out for us, people are turning to computers to solve every problem that they encounter in everyday life.
