What’s it mean to be “creative?”
Says the great John Cleese, that’s an almost impossible question to answer. Easier is to ask yourself, “What doesn’t it mean?”
Or as he puts it in the brilliant talk below, think of the sculptor who was asked how he made a beautiful statue of an elephant from a piece of marble.
“I just,” he answered, “cut away the bits that weren’t elephant.”
Watch below and be both enlightened and amazed…
