I wanted my first Mojo blog to be thought provoking. Therefore, I ask this question.
Are you a Creative Mofo?
For me, creativity is the stuff you do at the edges. But the edges are different for everyone, and the edges change over time. If you visualize the “self worth” territory inside your mind as an old comfy sweatshirt, you realize that over time, it stretches out, it gets looser, the edges move away. Stuff that would have been creative last year isn’t creative at all today, because it’s not near the edges any more. If you want to be creative, understand that you’ll need to get to the edges, even if the edges have moved. Being creative means immediately going to the place the last person left off. Its about finding your time to shine without risking it all and still having fun. If you consider yourself “not creative”, or if you are the sort of person that gets uncomfortable being creative or has been persuaded you’re not capable, don’t worry about it. Just stretch the old comfy sweatshirt in your spare time, watch the creative people operate around you. Then, when you do your “creative” thing, most people will think it’s pretty creative indeed. If you want to do it, it will be awesome. If you dont want to do it, then you will only reinforce that you are truly not capable. We dont want that to happen, but if it does, read this blog again.
