Creative Mondays: Of Creativity and Enterprise..
Creativity and Enterprise are two sides of the same coin. They are the Yin and the Yang that makes success. Think about it. Ideas fuels enterprise, enterprise fuels enterprise. Or does it?
Here are some eye-opening reminders
Creativity is innate. We are all born to create.
The ability to make something out of nothing and leverage it, also called entrepreneurship is innate too.
But here is the trick. For us to harvest anything out of our creative sense, we must “work it”
Similarly, for there to be tangible enterprise, we must try, take risks, make it happen.
Again, we can never achieve any of the two through pure inspiration or wishful thinking.
It’s true. Creativity and enterprise = WORK!
Given. We must continue to romanticize creativity
No Doubt. We must continue to idolize enterprise
Indeed. Inspiration is a great resource to get us going…
And certainly we mustn’t lose the passion of pursuit and the curiosity of questioning and discovering.
We must remember however that to be a true success as a creative, we require enterprise.
And to be true entrepreneur’s, we must be creators. Turning Ideas into a Business, and continually spawning new ideas in a business is an Art.
So what is the fodder that feeds entrepreneurs and creators?
Challenges, in plain terms. Problems
Yes, Entrepreneurs must face hurdles. Take risks even.
So are you an entrepreneur?
Are you a creative?
How do you define yourself?
Perhaps some word play might just yield the identity that describes you best in your best form.
Createprenuer or is it entrecreateur?
Whatever you call yourself, you gotta work both sides of the coin to succeed.
As always, keep #creating. And remember to share your genius via #CreativeMondays on Twitter.
