The Habits of Highly Creative People Image 1 DK

Creativity is a nebulous, murky topic that fascinates me endlessly — how does it work? What habits do creative people do that makes them so successful at creativity?

I’ve reflected on my own creative habits, but decided I’d look at the habits that others consider important to their creativity. I picked a handful of creatives, almost at random — there are so many that picking the best would be impossible, so I just picked some that I admire, who came to mind when I thought of the word “creative.”

This was going to be a list of their creative habits… But in reviewing their lists, and my own habits, I found 1 that stood out. And it stands out if you review the habits and quotes from great creative people in history.

It’s the most important habit when it comes to creativity.

After you read the No. 1 habit, please scroll down and read the No. 2 habit — they might seem contradictory, but in my experience you can’t really hit your creative stride until you find a way to balance both habits.
