why creativity is a sport
Whenever a keynote is given about creativity, at some point Thomas Edison’s quote comes into play: "Genius is 1 percent inspiration, 99 percent perspiration." Creativity is thought of as hard work. But why not see it as a sport? What if we reframe creativity?
We like to change the perception of the creative process to be an exciting and rewarding ride similar to running a marathon or climbing a mountain. Peak performance in work and sports equally requires gallons of sweat. However, work is associated with duty, discipline and compulsion, while sports are linked with passion, drive and enthusiasm.
