“A great deal of creativity is about pattern recognition, and what you need to discern patterns is tons of data. Your mind collects that data by taking note of random details and anomalies easily seen every day: quirks and changes that, eventually, add up to insights.”
I think of myself as a creative person. But creativity needs to be nurtured day in and day out to grow. To thrive. Days without practice can cloud your vision. Stress, negativity and intense focus in a different part of my brain all cloud my vision and decrease creativity.
Instagram is a funny and frequent tool that clears my creative lens and forces me to see. That is one of the things I like most about these squares.
