Planning & Process
Creativity doesn’t “just happen,” by inspiration, Muse, or daring. While the Creative Process does require recurrent leaps of faith, those leaps are grounded in using courage to test ideas, braving mistakes and learning from iterations, project planning (including time, energy,
and resource management), and organization that supports creativity along with fulfilling the necessities
and opportunities of daily life. Discover the power
of planning and understand the processes
inherent to creativity to unlock your Creative
yearnings and potential!
