TED Thursday: The Challenges of Creativity

Every Thursday I will be choosing and posting a TED Talk that I think should be shared with you. I will not go at length about the benefits of it; they speak for themselves! Instead, I will provide you with the quick presentation blurb for it from TED Talk. You take it from here! This week, the TED Talk I choose to share with you is:

How frustration can make us more creative
with Tim Harford

Challenges and problems can derail your creative process … or they can make you more creative than ever. In the surprising story behind the best-selling solo piano album of all time, Tim Harford may just convince you of the advantages of having to work with a little mess.

This TED Talk is an interesting one, and in addition, it made me smile. With the problems I have encounter with my old defective Wacom. With the frustration of not being able to do precise coloring and therefore so far posting only sketches to the Creative Challenge column, it just made sense to include it here.

 

***** Special Announcement!!!!*****
On Monday April 4 2016, come and visit! It will be the first of my “Quarterly Special Edition TED Reflections” (that is still a name in progress…) Essentially, I will look over all the talks I have chosen the post on TED Thursday for the last quarter and go deeper in details on the reasons I decided to include them, what they mean to me, how they touched me and enhance my life. Why doing that you ask.. Maybe you remember my post “Mindful Realistic Plans not Resolutions” where I explained my process of planning and reviewing my progress and goals on a regular basis.Well it appears that I just kicked my Quarterly Review Process up a notch! It’s well worth it!
