When we’re cut off from our own creative power, we become first distracted, our daily energy dissipated into mindless activities. Then we become disillusioned and disconnected. In time, despair sets in.
Socially we tend to label this as a psychological problem and sometimes it may be– but for many, it is firstly an educational challenge.
Most people don’t know how to consciously create.
We have been educated out of our creative capacities and our ability to conjure our natural creative skills (what the Go Creative! books call “creative mind” or “create-state“). The default for schools, workplaces, media, and social structures are the more conventional, conceptual and conformist ways of thinking and behaving (“conceptual mind” or “con-state”).
To tap back into the creative flow that is innately there, we need to re-educate our bodies and brains. Understand how creativity works. Change our habits to align with its needs.
A new brand of creativepreneur is doing just that, through running digital micro-businesses based on creative principles.
This nine-book series is a guide to how to set up and run a successful creative enterprise (for-profit or non-profit) as a creativepreneur.
