Creativity rules...

Dehors, la pluie finie de détremper le pavé des rues Parisiennes. Hier soir, il faisait 13 degrés a 3h du matin, et les rues désertes me faisaient penser à un remake parisien de « 28 jours plus tard ». Je n’ai pas le souvenir d’avoir vu un week end du 15 Août aussi… hivernal. Et dire que je suis en vacances…

 

 

La loi de Murphy

 

Je crois que pour le bien être de la nation, je ne prendrai plus de vacances en été…

 

Promis…

 

Sur la table basse, mon ordinateur portable me nargue, « link error ». C’est pourtant le temps idéal pour coder, mais Visual boude. Je pousse le son, la voix oh so british de Lilly Allen ramène un peu de soleil.

 

 

Tant pis, j’irai au cinéma voir « Adieu Cuba » plutôt. Mais avant, je fini de lire un petit article sur la créativité.

 

Creativity. It's a word that fills some people with shivers of anxiety. "I'm just not creative," they say, when asked to contribute to a brainstorming session or to come up with ideas for how to improve workplace processes. It's as though they believe the myth that some people are born creative and others are not.

Yet as anyone who has spent time watching children at play can tell you, we all have the ability to be creative--to create novel things or ideas or combine existing things in novel ways. When we were kids, all of us were able to pretend to be a basketball player taking a last-second shot in the seventh game of the NBA Finals, or a ballerina dancing in front of an audience of kings and queens; all of us were able to transform a hub cap into a flying saucer, or a twig into a gun, using just our imaginations.

By the time many people reach adulthood, though, they haven't exercised that ability in a long time. They've lost the sense of freedom and possibility that most kids take for granted. They've simply forgotten how to play. Years of schooling emphasizing rote memorization, pressures to conform, and the emphasis in professional life on metrics and deadlines all conspire to drum the creative ability out of us. Over time we start to believe creativity is the province of the writer, artist, and musician, and "regular folks" don't have the capacity for creative thought or action. 


La créativité par le jeu. Les enfants savent, eux…
