Creativity, our most fascinating ability

The reason that most of us don’t appreciate the fact that we are creative is because we are not in a career that facilitates it. When we are not in a career that we are intrinsically motivated in or passionate about, creativity seems like a distant thing. Yet take that same person and place them in a career that they are passionate about and watch their creative skills blossom.

(Some of this piece reminded me of Steven Johnson’s Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation.)
