Live creatively

Creativity is not just for writers and artists. Every endeavor in life, and indeed life itself, can benefit from a creative approach.

There’s the way you’ve always done it, and it works, and that’s fine. Yet very likely there’s an even better way, more effective, more satisfying, more enduring, more fun.

Look at what’s there now, consider what’s happened in the past and how it worked out, then mix it all with what might be. That’s a good starting point for creativity.

Then perhaps you can add in a little randomness, something that catches your eye. Because, who knows, it might just work.

That doesn’t mean you should completely disconnect from reality in order to be creative. What it means is that there are plenty of ways you can creatively improve on reality.

And in a very fundamental sense, isn’t that what life is all about? Live creatively, and continue discovering new ways to be more fully alive.

— Ralph Marston
