Why I Hate the Term 'Creatives'

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

There's no such thing as creative people and non-creative people. There are only people who use their creativity and people who don't . . . Creativity, which is the expression of our originality, helps us stay mindful that what we bring to the world is completely original and cannot be compared. And, without comparison, concepts like ahead or behind or best or worst lose their meaning. -- Brené Brown

Labeling someone a "creative" (which demands that the opposite — uncreative — exists) is a form of self-sabotage. We immediately limit not other people's potential, but our own, because we've closed off our minds to possibilities and collaboration with those whose solutions may surprise us the most.
