How To Be Creative: Navigating The Creative Process

shockleewebpic_howtobecreativePBSThe mysteries of creativity are similar to the mysteries of the universe; seeking to understand these require constant exploration, open-mindedness, constantly chasing down leads that may not go anywhere, sometimes you come across a great discovery, achievement or ‘happy accident’ and sometimes it’s the journey of the experience which teaches or enlightens you to things you may not have discovered otherwise.

Whether we’re talking creativity or science, moments of despair often lead to new things. So is there such a thing as a proper way to deal with the creative process? Take a look at this piece from the PBS Off Book series with some on-point advice that might help or confirm your methods of creativity.

Creativity has always been essential for our cultural growth, but there are still many misconceptions about this elusive process. Not the left-brain/right-brain binary that we’ve come to believe, being creative is considerably more complex, and requires a nuanced understanding of ourself and others. Being a powerful creative person involves letting go of preconceived notions of what an artist is, and discovering and inventing new processes that yield great ideas. Most importantly, creators must push forward, whether the light bulb illuminates or not.
