I believe the one common denominator of creativity is this: We are most creative when we put ALL of ourselves into the effort.
The key word in that sentence should be spelled ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL !
That little, tiny 3-letter word has a 3-inch definition in my Webster dictionary, including:
the whole of
one's whole interest, energy
in spite of circumstances
We are most creative when we put ourselves WHOLLY - our whole energy - our whole interest into the effort.
We are most creative when we put EVERYTHING into the effort.
