Supporting Creativity


The world is a magnificent place. Although there are many people & organizations that through their actions may make you believe otherwise, the world is a good place overall.

I think that one of the most important things in this world is creativity.

Without human creativity, there wouldn't be growth, there wouldn't be innovation. Think about it: everything we've achieved as a human species can be attributed to creativity. It's a key human trait and there's no denying it.

Yet, I feel like in present times we've put common creativity behind. It's not that there aren't artists, makers, inventors, storytellers etc. It's just that it's not yet common among most people. The default is non-creative, and it shouldn't be that way.

Most people don't even care about being creative. For them, a life made of repetitive cycles is a fulfilling life. Don't get me wrong: I don't think it's their fault, or that they should be ostracized for not being actively creative. I just see an immense amount of untapped creation.

So, how do we mitigate this?

By supporting creativity. Taking your friend to an art class, buying some random dude's photos from the Internet, donating to a Science training foundation, or just gifting someone a book. It's that simple - even just a book may sparkle creativity and "unblock" someone.

Whenever you can, give and support others. It always pays off.
