Creativity has no limits

A few days ago, I watched a group of young people, mostly students, standing around and discussing animatedly. Suddenly I heard one of them say in a loud voice “Creativity has no limits!” How interesting I thought. Is this true for most of us? Do we limit ourselves unintentionally? Do we allow circumstances to dictate some limits? Is there a life force of creativity available that we don’t always tap into?
It seems to me those Russian dance skaters who won gold were tapping into a level of creativity that triumphed over the usual limits.

Have you experienced moments that surprised you? Are there particular circumstances, good or bad, that effect your creativity?

What mode of expression appeals to you? Art, music, writing, or snowboarding. I was fascinated to see the individuality shown by the snowboarders at the Olympics. Are there new forms of creativity emerging?

I was also amazed to see the variety of books on display as I walked through Barnes and Noble. And stunned to see the variety of options offered to me as I scrolled through their Nook e-reader. With all the possibilities, simple focus is one important element of creativity that I am going to have to pay attention to. Having a pen in my hand as I write is a help to me but surely not to others.

What helps you focus on creative work?
