If you’ve been listening for any length of time, you’ll know that I very firmly believe that anyone who’s breathing is creative. I recently came across a definition of creativity that really rankled me, because it seemed to be saying the exact opposite was true. I contacted my friend and fellow creativity coach Dawn Kotzer, who’s been on the show before, and asked her if she’d be interested in tackling the question of just what creativity really is. We batted that question around, looking at everything from the vital nature of failure to the power of constraints to the role of acceptance, humility, and even humiliation in the creative process. If that’s not enough, we also examined driving a stick-shift car as a metaphor for creativity. Did we reach any solid conclusions? I think we did, and I think you’ll get a lot out of listening in on our conversation.
