One Is Not Enough: Why Creative People Need Multiple Outlets | Art on GOOD

I still don’t know what I want to build next.  But I do know that to make the people happy, especially the ones with tons of raw creativities, we’ll have to provide a structure that provides, instead of kills, more than one outlets.

The kind of employment agreement where one can’t do anything except work related tasks scares the shit out of me.

Creativity in any form is healthy, as study after study has shown. Designing magazines and drawing on every surface imaginable has helped define who I am and my understanding of the world—and allows me to inform that world, shape it, and make it something imaginative and delightful. Finding a secondary creative outlet would allow my creativity, not my craft, to define me. In the meantime, it’s nice to know I can drag a crayon across the page and feel like it’s all going to be ok.
