“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.” – Steve Jobs
I know I’ve definitely shared this quote on here in the past. And, let’s face it, who hasn’t shared a Steve Jobs quote at some point in their life.
Yet it just rings so true. To me, at least.
When you’re trying to create something and get it right it can be so frustrating.
The words won’t quite flow, the image doesn’t quite look right etc.
And then suddenly you have that moment of realisation and you make a connection. One that was there all along, but you’d just not quite noticed.
Creativity is like a Rubik’s cube – without the formulas that make Rubik’s cubes easy.
