Creativity is not optional.
It is a necessity. We are born creative, most of us just have one too many negative experiences with it so we swear it off forever.

I see this in the classroom which I work, I see it with the musicians that I work with. Our minds need to create things, to use that muscle. It’s not something that happens overnight, it is a skill that needs to be cultivated.
What little changes can we make in our schedule to cultivate our creativity? What fear or fears keep us from being creative?
