Sharing our Creativity. Why it matters.

by • April 17, 2016 • No Comments

As children our creativity is without limits. If you watch children surrounded by stacks of white paper and crayons in each color of the rainbow, they can pick up a color at random and begin
drawing right away. And and so proudly display their drawing prominently.


But donate many 16-year-olds a blank piece of paper and a box of crayons and they’ll sit there for several minutes attempting to ponder
of what to draw. And if you post which
picture on Instagram and tag them, they’ll be horrified.

As we grow up, we are trained out of freely expressing ourselves. Our paper gains lines and we are told to color inside them. Our rainbow crayons are replaced with blue and black pens and #2 pencils. And eachthing we turn it into gets marked up in red, outlining where we went wrong. Even yet we may yet take pleasure in producing things, we become shy of sharing our designs with others.

I ponder
Seth Godin has a profound insight into why we don’t share our creativity or ideas in general:

“One reason we frequently find ourselves with nothing much to say is which
we’ve may already
decided which
it’s safer and simpler to say nothing.”

But he goes on to say, “If you’ve fallen into which
trap, and so committing to having a point of view and scheduling a time and place to say a thing is almany pretty going to improve your ponder
ing, your attitude and your trajectory.”

This is the same with sharing what we turn it into. There’s value to it, for ourselves and others.

  • It stores us ponder
    ing for ourselves.

  • It stores us brave. As children we are swift to take risks for the reason
    we have no fear. No fear of failure, no fear of rejection. It brings us back to this fearlessness.

  • It stores us humble for the reason
    we are producing ourselves vulnerable to feedback or actually criticism, and to learn of it.

  • It encourages us to turn it into and share additional when someone likes or actually buys our ideas.

  • It inspires others to be creative.
