Sarah McElrath's curator insight, February 1, 2013 6:51 AM

Interesting article. This would eplain why so many individuals now thought to be creative were not considered so during their lifetime. Still, if something is useful to you--solves a problem for you in a unique way--is that not still creative? The "useful" part also troubles me a bit. Makes for good discussions.

Tom Wojick's curator insight, March 21, 10:04 AM

10 hard skills to learn that will last a lifetime 

10 hard skills to learn that will last a lifetime  | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it
To survive growing up on a remote cattle ranch in the middle of Wyoming, I needed to be scrappy, gritty, and tenacious. If I wasn’t keeping an eye out for rattle snakes, I was avoiding horned bulls from charging my horse as I tried to cut them from a herd of cows.

 I learned many important life lessons on that ranch, not the least is that it takes hard work, sweat, and mental toughness to get to the top and stay there. I took many of those lessons with me into the FBI as an undercover and counterintelligence agent for 24 years.
