On the Joy of Creativity

Writing on the joy of creativity, Dr. Seuss tells great leaders: “Think left and think right, and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try.” It is that magical power we hold to break away from seeing the world as it is to what it can be, to let our imagination run freely and create new possibilities and realities undreamed.

John Maxwell speaks of the principal characteristic of the creative person: “I believe that creative people always believe that there is an answer… and that’s why they stay creative. If I don’t think there is an answer, I’ll stop, I’ll quit, I’ll get discouraged, but if I think there is an answer, I’ll keep digging, I’ll keep creating until I find that answer.”

Maya Angelou writes: “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” May you always remember Maxwell’s words: “There’s always an answer. Go find it today.” As John Muir said: “The power of imagination makes us infinite.”  Think left and think right, and think high and low. Bring to the world the beauty and joy of your inestimable uniqueness of perspectives and insights. You will find an answer!

Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
