Increase your Productivity : Using CIRCLE OF CREATIVITY, Issue #15 💡
Do you know how we humans differentiate ourselves from all other species?
Our ability to create, which differentiates us from other species.
This is the sole reason we are running the whole world.
That’s why when someone lives his or her whole life without having any quest for creating something or without having any insight for being creative then, I start thinking about whether that person is living or not.
Because it is like living your whole life as poor when you have keys to riches.
And just because you are too lazy or don’t want to explore any possibilities that you can even find your potential.
You remain in the same state where you were living already.
So, I am making it very clear that being creative is something one should aspire to in life.
But, what I mean by being creative. ?
Let me explain, as we all assume, or people always see creativity as something related to painting, art, or at most dancing/singing.
We have this notion that if anyone is engaged in these activities, he must be creative. Right?
Well, for me, creativity is not just restricted to drawing, art or singing, or dancing.
I think creativity originates when you move things in the forward direction; creativity exists when you enter into the unknown dimension, something you are not aware of.
But you still dare to enter into that field. And that’s creativity for me. It can include many things.
A scientist or mathematician struggling to come up with a new theory is creative.
And an entrepreneur who is trying to solve the existing problem is creative.
A social worker who struggles hard to make this society a better place for everyone is creative.
The dancer, artist, singer, and many attributes of humanity can fall under this category.
So ultimately, you are doing something which is helping this whole world to move forward. and that’s great. Isn’t it?
Well, as we have understood what exactly creativity is.
Now let us talk about what I mean by a circle of creativity.
Now let us talk about what I mean by a circle of creativity.
And how it can improve productivity.
First, we will have to understand that the process of creativity consists of 3 steps.
I.e., Interest – Learning – Creating
Now, accepting that quest of creating something is natural for all of us, and it lies in every one of us.
But that doesn't mean all of us to give justice to our insight for the quest for creativity.
Or invest our time and energy to flourish this possibility.
But instead, we tend to live the same monotonous life just because we are too afraid of new changes.
And creativity, by its nature, challenges our past.
To be creative means coming up with something new, and when one tries to create something new, the part which loves to remain in the past opposes wholeheartedly.
And that's the reason people remain in the field of "interest" for almost most of their life.
I always see people who say I have an interest in this.
But, I hardly see anyone taking the next step and giving time and energy to do what they love.
And remember, one can only be creative in the field that loves, which one feels for, close to one's heart.
That doesn't mean you can not be successful in other things. You can be, but I will bet you can not be creative in that field.
You will do things in a monotonous fashion. You will do only enough to touch the threshold.
But never to go beyond the threshold. And believe me, that will kill you one-day internally.
When will that time come? I can't say that, but that time will come! I am certain about that.
So, what I Suggest.
You first find out what it is that you love.
What is that which resonates with your heart? What is that which makes you feel like home?
And what is that where you can contribute something?
Once you find out this, allocate some time of your life to your creative field. It can be anything.
And start doing it.
You don't need to be perfect; you don't need to win the world in that particular field.
But, you need to give some serious time to the thing which you loved the most.
And start improving it.
Now you have begun creating something, and the moment you feel like you stuck somewhere, go back and learn about it.
And again, start creating it.
Never fall into the trap of thinking; let me learn everything first.
And then I will start creating it.
Many people think this way, and they tend to justify it by saying I want to do something very perfect.
But then you will never start.
And after some year, you will say to yourself. Man, I love this. Had I have some time in the past, I could have done this.
But remember, no one gets more time than 24 hours a day. Time is a great equalizer.
If you think someone can do it because he has time. Then you're mistaken. Because this thinking that he must have got more time is nothing but a false understanding of life.
So, create, whenever you got time, create, be it morning, be it an evening, be it a night.
Or whatever time you feel comfortable with.
And wherever you are stuck, go back to the phase of learning.
This is the time to learn and understand where you should improve upon and then again start creating, again take a deep breath and create.
I guarantee you it will complete your life. It will make your life more joyful, you will feel like living in every moment.
Do you know why I am saying so? Because, now you are among a very less percentage of people who are creating, improving, and becoming better people every day. And that's very satisfying.
And, you can do it by practicing this "Circle of Creativity." Well, what important is to be creative and create something.
I just called it a circle of creativity; you can call it whatever you want to call. But remember to give meaning to your life and create something.
This life is concise to fake happiness on social media, take control of your creative possibilities, and experience the joy of life.
