What it Means to be a Creative

What it Means to be a Creative

There is a quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt that hangs on the bulletin board in my home office offers insight into what it means to me to be a creative person.

It reads: "Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of the creative effort."

I'm not sure how FDR had time for creative outlets during his time as President for a historic three terms. But as a brief read through his biography on Wikipedia indicates, he was a scholarly man of many interests. So it is probably his appreciation for a pioneering creative person from which this quote derives.

When Creatively Stuck, Believe in Yourself

When Creatively Stuck, Believe in Yourself

Like most creatives, I have my insecure moments. These are when I'm not sure what decision to make. When I can't see one definite plan, or clear path. When self-doubt is just over-whelming. This is when it's most important that I remember to believe in myself.
