What is Creativity?

 Let’s start with the dictionary definition, however brief and limited, it covers the basics:

Creativity: the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, or imagination.

To this definition let us add the following:
Creativity: an act of transformation by which we turn one idea or thing into something else by way of intellectual, chemical or manual alchemy.

The Courage to Fail Over and Over Again

Creativity is the experimental laboratory of civilization. It expects and needs trial and error, and the courage to fail over and over again. In the words of Samuel Becket on the secret of his creativity:

“Fail, fail again, fail better.“ Samuel Becket

The Sum of Creativity is Always
Greater than its Parts

Creativity may look like a noun but it is really a verb—and in specific an action. It could be an interior or exterior process–a thought or a manifestation, an idea or a product, but it is always an action, an energy, a putting one’s self forth into the unknown. Creativity is the world of the intrepid explorer, of the adult 2 year old, who never ceases to ask the questions:
Why?
What if?
