The Big Leap

Who said creativeness was limited to the arts anyway?   I mean, no one really says that, but what I do hear often is people say, “I’m not that creative”.  In most cases, they are referencing a comparison of themselves to someone who is creative in the arts.  This is so far from the truth.  Even though my personal creativeness is connected to music, I know without a doubt, that all people are creative whether they’ve identified what their creativeness is or not.  

 

Every time I drive thru some newly built, highway mouse trap looking thing, I am blown away by the kind of minds it takes to pull something like that off.  When I go see my accountant, I am thoroughly impressed and thankful for his creative gifts.  When I witness a person running a thriving organization with employees that are flourishing and loving life,  I marvel at the mind that can manage all that.  I could write pages of paragraphs of examples, but you get the point.  These folks are as creative as any musician or artist out there in the world.

I know personally what makes me feel uncreative.  It’s a simple explanation.  When I avoid doing exactly what I was created to do, call it my Zone Of Genius, I will feel uncreative.  You do that long enough, a life of vitality and excitement will begin to drain out of you until you don’t even remember what your creative gifts are.

 

The day I made the mental shift back towards my creativity was the day I got my life back.   If I go even a day without picking up my guitar, it affects my mood.  It’s what I was created to do.  I learned this from “The Big Leap” by Gay Hendricks.  Your “Zone of Genius”  are the things you do that cause time to disappear.  I have spent hours playing the exact same guitar lick I just learned...over and over and over.  I enjoyed every second of it and couldn’t wait to do it again.   That’s how you know.
