how to be creative

hugh “cartoons drawn on the back of business cards” macleod of gaping void details how to be creative. And he does it very well.

Further thought spawned by the opening cartoon:

Is money the enemy of creativity? If you have too much money does that remove the need to be creative (Microsoft)? Is that why poor college students come up with revolutionary ideas (Google) but their creativity seems to wane as their pockets fill?

Am I less creative now than I was in high school because, I’m, gasp… comfortable and complacent?

Hmmm… methinks so. Free time is part of the equation, although at present, my free-time is spent un-creativley sucking down Hollywood movies… ugh. Is there no turning back? Is it a slippery slope? Or is there salvation available?
