If you regularly read my blog, you know that I enjoy all things related to creativity. Via the Huffington Post, I discovered this interesting article entitled, 18 Things Highly Creative People Do Differently written by Carolyn Gregoire.
Here are some of the points that caught my attention:
- "In order to be open to creativity, one must have the capacity for constructive use of solitude. One must overcome the fear of being alone," according to psychologist Rollo May.
- "Creative people are insatiably curious -- they generally opt to live the examined life, and even as they get older, maintain a sense of curiosity about life. Whether through intense conversation or solitary mind-wandering, creatives look at the world around them and want to know why, and how, it is the way it is."
- "If there's one thing that distinguishes highly creative people from others, it's the ability to see possibilities where others don't -- or, in other words, vision. Many great artists and writers have said that creativity is simply the ability to connect the dots that others might never think to connect."
