Can Creativity Be Taught?

No it cannot. It must be unleashed.

We spend the majority of our lives having our creativity beat out of us.

  • Factory grade schools with teachers shouting at daydreamers
  • A society that preaches conformity and ignorance
  • Bland professors afraid (or unable) to rock the boat
  • Dull jobs that don't require real brainpower

These are all factors that cage our creativity.

Think back to childhood when a stick and a garden hose were fodder for hours of imagination-enabled entertainment.

To harness creativity you must unleash the imagination.


"Imagination is more important than knowledge."
~ Albert Einstein


Until you liberate your imagination, you'll never be creative. And creativity is the heart of innovation.
