Mark McAdam Posted over 2 years ago What are the challenges that gifted and creative individuals face at present? My comments in regards to 'Just because the lights are on it does not necessarily mean someone is home' is how I imagine creativity is. I think its a natural process innate in all of us but like most of us we either don't know how to express it or don't recognise it as creativity. How often Ive stood and been stopped in my tracks by a piece of music & left in awe of its creation. Im not sure how Id quantify creativity. What seems like a odd idea today often becomes the reality of tomorrow. I think the challenge creative people face is accepting their creativity. How many artists are not appreciated until they're dead? Its not a even playing field when it comes to creativity hence not being able to quantify. In a world where people like to know how we 'fit' or 'slot' compared to the rest of the world or peers it must be frustrating.
