We are meant to create.
Inside each of us is a deep desire to create something that did not exist before. When we create things of substance and beauty, we find joy, fulfillment, and meaning.
No matter our education, abilities, vocation, or roles, we all have opportunities to create. It might be a piece of visual art, a young child's mastery of a new skill, a communication system, or a gift for a friend. Productivity at its best involves active creation of things that add more value to the world around us.
Here are a few things I am creating:
- this blog post
- a collaborative project among visionaries and artists to raise money for an important cause
- spiritual, emotional, and social growth in my young son
- a tomato plant from seed
- new depth in friendships
