I came across a great YouTube this week where John Cleese is talking about creativity. As always he is very engaging and he also brings some fresh insights into the creative process. He discusses conditions for allowing creativity and how most of the time we are in a closed mode of thinking. To get into the open mode – you need the following things…

  1. Space
  2. Time
  3. Time
  4. Confidence
  5. Humour

He then proceeds to elaborate on what these are.

Anyway here he is – check it out for your self it is well worth the time to listen.

I tried to embed the video but it just refused to be enbedded, so I do apologize but you will have to follow a link. I gather I’m not the only one having this issue, the forums are full of people talking about it – well that made me feel a tiny bit better after the 15th attempt to embed!!! Anyway – heres the link – its worth watching!
