Depression and creativity: dispelling the myth

Depression and creativity: dispelling the myth | No Talent Left Behind | Scoop.it

Writers and artists are so often portrayed as tormented. It’s a popular cliche. There seems to be a prevailing notion that in order to create, one must be unhappy – the lower the level of despair, the “deeper” a person is, and thus the more able to create powerful messages and images.Many artists and writers are both talented and troubled; that’s well known. Is the sadness the root of their skill? If they were happier, would they be less productive, or more so?

When do people have their best ideas? When they least expect to

SUMMARY: Recent studies suggest that the best way to have a breakthrough is to step back and allow your mind to wander a little. Innovators suggest thinking about your problem at a time you'd normally be doing other things and making time to think about anything but work. "You have to be able to float through your environment with your antennae up, like a butterfly, and just let things ping your antennae," says entrepreneur Sterling Lanier.
