Giving the impression that our oceans are limitless, we see waves roll endlessly into shore. World Ocean Day today reminds us that our limited resource affects our climate and food supply. Have you noticed that your creativity at times seems limitless but other times feels bounded.
“To myself I am only a child playing on the beach, while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me,” described Sir Isaac Newton.
Newtons First Law says: “Energy can be neither created nor destroyed. It can only change forms.” Does this apply to creative energy too?
By exercising your creative talents; do you generate more capacity to create? It seems that people who create often have diverse interests and create in many different fields.
Do you find that on days spent sitting on a plane or in front of a computer, energy gets stored up and afterwards, you have the urge to do some exercise. Likewise on active days, an evening jog is the last thing you need. Similarly, on days full of routine tasks, do you feel more creative at night? And after a full day of solving interpersonal problems, and being innovative, do you have any creative sparks left to light the evening?
After a long time paddling through the waves, you get stronger but also at some point get tired. What do you think, does being creative bring more creativity? And are there limits? How can we sustain our oceans? And how do you sustain your creativity?
