Your Creativity Isn't a Product, Program or Platform
When you believe you can devise a structure in order to be creative, you could be missing out on an important aspect of what it means to be creative. Creativity can be quite elusive and the tendency is to try and capture or embody your creative thoughts in a linear manner. When you allow your mind to connect to your muse in a non-linear way, you become open to a different way of thinking.
Our rational and logical thinking dominates most of our thoughts. It’s important to have the capacity to think logically, but most often it’s the way we think all the time. When we think like this, we close off the opportunity to allow non-linear thoughts to occur
What does this mean?
Linear is defined in the dictionary as “straight, direct, right, straightaway, straight forward”
So with this definition in mind, non-linear would be: non-direct, crooked, not right or left, not straight or straight forward. This concept can be quite scary because our reality is based on this concrete and “normal” way of regarding the world. Many creative people have lost their way because of their inability to relate in a “linear”way of thinking. We don’t need to go crazy to discover our creative voice!
Being creative is akin to dreaming. Daydreaming is a good way to allow creative thoughts to emerge.
It’s not about wishing for a better platform, product or program. Yes, you can create your business and these 3 P’s could be the result. But what’s more important is to let go and not focus on the results.
When your are creative you are allowing your thinking to flow with no direction. You may want to write down the ideas, or record them. You may want to draw or just doodle anything. Or sing the notes, or dance for no reason.
Creativity is doing without a reason or tightly held expectation. It’s really about bringing you joy in the present moment.
