It’s not enough to be creative, you have to be creative at something.
Creativity is a doing, rather than a being.
The doing comes from discovering goals, and achieving them. I say discovering goals, rather than setting goals, because we’re good at setting goals — New Year’s resolutions spring to mind—but then forgetting all about them.
Usually we forget about the goals we set as New Year’s resolutions because the goals, although worthwhile in themselves, weren’t “real” for us.
