What Is Creativity Telling You?

This week I found myself in a creative block. I wasn't inspired to do anything. I did my usual blogging and writing, but realized that I was just going through the motions. Then I found myself questioning whether it was time to move onto something else.

And then I came across this video of a TEDx talk by Jonathan Tilley on the subject of creativity...

One thing that Jonathan touches upon that I like to remind people of is that we are all creative. We are all artists in one way or another. This blog is for artists and entrepreneurs, which means that it is for everybody.

Another idea that Jonathan talks about is getting into a sacred space and allowing the creativity to flow. This is one thing that I seemed to have forgotten in my need to finish projects and meet "deadlines". In my rush to get things done, I was actually blocking the creativity energy, which is why it was taking me more than double the time it normally took to finish a project.

Now that you know about your natural creative state, how will you use that creative energy to bring life to your dreams or inspire and help others?
