WP_20130823_00820130823141913

Have you every uttered the phrase “I am not a creative person”?  Or “I am not creative, like ______”?  Or “If ____ was here we could have a creative answer to this problem”?

These are all myths.

Everyone is creative, some just need to uncover or rediscover their creativeness.

Have you ever heard the creativity myth that being creative means you have to come up with original ideas?  I have.  Many times in fact.  This scares people away from allowing themselves to be creative.  The truth is…

Creativity = Assembly

Creativity is about stealing ideas from many different places and assembling them in a way no one has before.  It is that simple.

What do you think?  Does creativity = assembly?
