This article will get you off the "dime" in your life or you will just stay like you are but you won't be able to complain any more because you made that "decision". It's to easy to say I can't or I won't but better to try and possibly fail than do nothing. Thanks for the motivation.

A New Perspective new Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

The points brought up here are an interesting perspective. It is to often that we get caught up in the daily routine of family, friends, and work and forget that someone else's daily routine may be of more interest to us than our own. Creativity is underated and whether it nets you millions or not it, will certainly result in a broadened perspetive of the world around you. Few things are free, creativity is one of them.

It is paradoxical: if you are creative, you will try one or many of these things else, you wont even think about them. Not the other way around as portrayed here.

Thanks for the comments Gabriel. I would have to agree that many people share your view that creativity is a ‘have’ or ‘have not’ condition. My position is that where there is life, there is creativity. The question before each of us as individuals is how much creativity we will allow ourselves to enjoy. For many people, the pressure of conformity within our society trains us to be good soldiers: we march in step, we only do what we are told, and we mark ‘C’ on multiple choice tests when we don’t know the answer. I resist the idea of a ‘non-creative person’. Instead, I submit that each of us has a niche within the creativity spectrum, and that our niche is not fixed. We can indeed increase or decrease our creativity by the daily choices we make. As Buzz Lightyear is so fond of saying: "To infinity, and beyond..."

Wondering whether some people have connections such that regurgitated self help speak wins awards, another thought comes to mind. Some people have an awful lot of time on their hands. Those of you who do not have trust funds would be well served to ignore this "advice" to stop working and enjoy life. Rather, save first and enjoy life only a bit for now. Economic upheaval will not affect people like the author of the piece, not because they are postured as brilliant but because they have the funding to have the free time to re-cast well worn platitudes. And that wins awards? Sort of makes you wonder who are the relatives of the people with the keys to the shop - OR, perhaps there is a huge population of people without focus in their lives desperate for a vision thing. Don't worry about it if you are a good person, you are on the path. If not, then watch out because your friends are not so true after you do them or they see you. Some time out to help others is appropriate, but not if you cannot afford to raise a family. PS: You professors out there, especially physics professors, when you say that "you don't make any money doing this, but if your heart is in it you are paid for what you love." You guys are just whoring really cheap labor when you do that to working people. If you have any honor you will say that if a youth excited about physics wants to raise a family this would not apply. Ask the student if they want a family. Have the honor of letting them know that the non-DoD high tech field competes citizens against people that want a green card more than the salary for the most part, and if you are a citizen, you don't need the compensation (gree card). Sure, creative adventures are fine, then you are 40 and looking back you could have had a family but never had the money to feel comfortable to do that, and at this age all that is out there is divorcees with children and huge things that teenagers think they love (women - stay away from that surgeon if you want to be more attractive through the duration). Creativity is great in a free market, but if your field "has a shortage of qualified workers" then you are not in a free market society but rather a subsidized one, the companies crying to Wash. DC are not telling the truth. It is impossible to have a shortage in a free market society.
