Creativity Part Deux

Components of Creativity

Karlyn Adams argues that, "Motivation, in addition to foundational knowledge and thinking skills, is essential to creativity (see below). The creative person is intrinsically motivated (that is, moved by the work itself and not by some external recognition or reward), with a passion for his or her field. Energy and persistence are central to creative accomplishment, as is self-confidence. "


So my question to you is - how motivated are you? Is there something I could do to help motivate you? Let me know.
