Drawing on both the right and the left logical side is more difficult in large part because we have not used the right side much. Most education aims at nurturing the left side so after a time the right side kind of atrophies.
Learning to be creative opens the door to painting or performing or pursuing a new vocation or hobby. Unfortunately, we live in a left-brained world and most people have forgotten how to exercise the right hemisphere.
It takes time and effort to relearn, to let go, be creative. Making mistakes, taking risks, experimenting is all part of the formula.
Yet there is profound hope because "we are all born creative," as creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson asserts.
