You possess the ability to create and invent. You can develop ideas that are new (original) and useful. Creativity is a productive endeavor and in the passing of time, we should be able to point to your body of work. Creating your body of work (oeuvre) requires you to devote yourself to the art of creation. It is up to you to embrace the discipline and work ethic demands of a creative life that is above average. There is no benefit to having the ability to create, and yet create nothing in the passing of time. It might be of benefit for you to ponder upon the question; “where are my creations?”.
King Solomon spoke 3,000 proverbs, and his songs were 1,005. He spoke of trees, from the cedar that is in Lebanon to the hyssop that grows out of the wall. He spoke also of beasts, and of birds, and of reptiles, and of fish. And people of all nations came to hear the wisdom of Solomon (extract from 1 Kings 4: 29-34). We read about King Uzziah getting machines made, invented by skillful men, to be on the towers and the corners, to shoot arrows and great stones (2 Chronicles 26:15). We also read about Thomas Edison and his oeuvre; a body of work that includes 1,093 patents. He will always be remembered for inventing the incandescent light bulb and one of the earliest motion picture cameras.
Where are your creations? Where are your songs, poems, food recipes, books, apps or engines? You have the ability to create, but now, you must find the time, space and courage to explore your creativity. You might not be impressed with your creative output at the moment. However, you have to persist in quantity in order for the quality to improve over time. Creativity should not be restricted to spontaneous bursts or nothing will ever get done. You want to have a rigid creator’s schedule that provides the necessary structure around your creative talents. Developing a plan to create everyday by 3AM is better than waiting for inspiration to strike. This will allow you to create more often.
