After receiving 123 responses, the one word that is most common in the answers to this question on my survey is, depends. Some common derivatives:
- depends on time
- depends on the project
- depends on other obligations
The next group of popular responses are to give an amount of time, but that varies from minutes to hours.
There are many people who didn’t answer this question, presumably because they didn’t feel they spent a discernible amount of time doing creative things.
My favourite answers can be best be summarized by saying that “creativity is my life“. There is no separation between time spent creatively or time spent on anything else. If I was taking the survey, I’m not sure I would have answered that way. I don’t know if I feel confident enough in saying “creativity is me, all the time”. Although I aspire to that.
Maybe ‘creativity’ will be my word for 2017. That thought brings a smile to my face!
In reference to creativity, I have written a book called, “Fruitless at 40: Rediscovering My Creative Power“. Check out Daily Creatives and consider leaving your email. I would love to send you updates on my creative journey!
