Hallmarks of Creative People

When I came across this article on the 25 things creative people do differently, I felt resonance and affirmation. Every single characteristic is important, and I encourage you to read, bookmark and return to this article.

I will summarize some of the points that resonate most with me. Creative people:

  1. Aren’t afraid to fail or to stand out as different because they value being to true to themselves
  2. Practice self-care, including a healthy diet, exercise and meditation, and self-development through constant learning
  3. Are fiercely independent and typically design careers that allow them to express their full selves
  4. Leverage their emotional, sensitive and intuitive nature to understand self, other people, challenges, and the world
  5. Are dreamers and doers, fueling their work with their passion, ethics, and the seeking out of new experiences

Defining creativity can be nebulous, but these characteristics ring true. Creativity is a choice, a behavior, and a skill we can hone.

Creativity can be expressed in many ways, including seeking out new experiences. One of mine in 2015 was a trip to Mayan Ruins in Belize. Unforgettable and inspiring!
