The unfold­ing of the unex­pect­ed becomes the ener­gy that dri­ves you. You dis­cov­er how thirsty you are for explo­ration with­out analy­sis. You become strange­ly at home in a place you can’t define. You are tru­ly cre­at­ing.

Robert I. Fitzhen­ry, Cana­di­an Pub­lish­er [Wikipedia]

Uncer­tain­ty and mys­tery are ener­gies of life. Don’t let them scare you undu­ly, for they keep bore­dom at bay and spark cre­ativ­i­ty.

7 Great Quotes

Lin­da Naiman, Founder, Cre­ativ­i­ty At Work [link]

For inno­va­tion to flour­ish, organ­i­sa­tions must cre­ate an envi­ron­ment that fos­ters cre­ativ­i­ty; bring­ing togeth­er mul­ti-tal­ent­ed groups of peo­ple who work in close col­lab­o­ra­tion togeth­er — exchang­ing knowl­edge, ideas and shap­ing the direc­tion of the future.

Steven Cov­ey, Author, The Sev­en Habits of High­ly Effec­tive Peo­ple [Wikipedia]

The cre­ative process is also the most ter­ri­fy­ing part because you don’t know exact­ly what’s going to hap­pen or where it is going to lead. You don’t know what new dan­gers and chal­lenges you’ll find. It takes an enor­mous amount of inter­nal secu­ri­ty to begin with the spir­it of adven­ture, dis­cov­ery, and cre­ativ­i­ty. With­out doubt, you have to leave the com­fort zone of base camp and con­front an entire­ly new and unknown wilder­ness.

Edward de Bono, Mal­tese Physi­cian, Psy­chol­o­gist and Inven­tor [Wikipedia]

As com­pe­ti­tion inten­si­fies, the need for cre­ative think­ing increas­es. It is no longer enough to do the same thing bet­ter … no longer enough to be effi­cient and solve prob­lems.

War­ren Ben­nis, Amer­i­can Con­sul­tant and Pro­fes­sor on Lead­er­ship [Wikipedia]

There are two ways of being cre­ative. One can sing and dance. Or one can cre­ate an envi­ron­ment in which singers and dancers flour­ish.

Ai Wei­wei, Chi­nese Artist and Activist [Wikipedia]

Cre­ativ­i­ty is the pow­er to reject the past, to change the sta­tus quo, and to seek new poten­tial. Sim­ply put, aside from using one’s imag­i­na­tion — per­haps more impor­tant­ly — cre­ativ­i­ty is the pow­er to act.
