Creativity: Invent and Innovate

Life is nothing if not infinitely creative—from the caterpillar to the cosmos, from the soufflé you cooked yesterday to the farthest star system, life is all about creativity. It is creativity that allows us to communicate across time and space, with music, the internet, poetry, and art. Creativity brings us into a state of flow, helps us to be more assertive, self assured, see the big picture, and feel joy. Our creative acts are gifts to others. Answer these twenty questions to find out about your own capacity for creativity.
