020: Where There’s Hope, There’s Creativity

by | Dec 7, 2020 | Podcast, Systematic Growth | 0 comments

If you’re wondering why you just can’t be creative or you’re almost losing that sense of hope of being able to generate a creative idea one day, well, don’t lose hope – just yet.

You see, HOPE is a prerequisite of creativity. 

Without hope, taking such a task as innovating becomes difficult, if not, impossible. After all, why bother if there is no hope for a successful future? 

Hope is a powerful element in innovation at work because creativity requires challenging the status quo and the willingness to try and possibly fail. 

Join me today as I discuss the value of hope as it relates to creative output.
