So many of us don’t feel we’re creative. We compare ourselves to Mozart, Shakespeare or Constable (to use three of the many greats) and find ourselves wanting.
But at Life Clubs we believe that everyone is creative and below is our quiz to prove it.
Score 1 point for every ‘yes’ you answer:
1. Have you ever cooked without using a recipe, driven to a familiar address a different way, mixed paints together to achieve your own unique colour when painting a wall, created a garden, made a present for someone, written a speech or done anything that you ‘made up/invented’?
2. Have you ever had a ‘Lifebulb Moment’ (when something you’ve been feeling has popped into your head or vice versa - sometimes known as ‘Aha’ moments). You can have these any time, whether reading, in the shower, writing, walking or at Life Clubs?
3. Have you ever been brainstorming alone or with friends or colleagues and come up with a whole new way of doing something or solved a problem or invented a new business or any new idea?
How did you score?
If you scored 3 points
You are pretty darn creative and will probably be aware that you’re a highly creative person. If you’re not working in the creative world, why not see if you can’t put a bit more creativity in your life – at work or out of it?
If you scored 2 points
Welcome to the land of creativity. You are truly creatively talented but might not yet have appreciated it. What about taking up something creative you used to like at kindergarten, whether painting, pottery, playing games or writing?
If you scored 1 point
Oh yes! That’s great – you’re aware that there’s creativity in you but you’re maybe not yet able to acknowledge it fully. I would start by saying ‘I’m creative’ and trusting that you’re creative and just start noticing how your confidence grows and little things in your life change.
If you scored 0 points
Maybe you’re so creative you just didn’t like this quiz. All I can say is apologies, and do send me one of yours.
