the life-or-death pursuit of creative-badass joy (+ why we’re all entrepreneurs now) | Justine Musk | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

We’re trained to be productive. We have to put food on the table. Who can afford the time and money to be creative, especially with all that daydreaming involved, that pointless wandering around? We’re coming out of an Industrial Age that trained us to be factory workers, sensible professionals, linear thinkers. Creativity had little to do with any of this. It was banished to the sidelines otherwise known as Bohemia, not exactly known for a flourishing economy.

 

But now, as we enter this post-consumer era where we differentiate ourselves not through our factories, but our ideas, the question has flipped upside over. As we step into The Creative Age, who can afford not to be creative?

Snippets:

 

 The great Kevin Kelly recently wrote a post titled “Cities are Immortal, Companies Die.” He states that

 

"Both are types of networks, with different destinies. There are two basic network forms: organisms or ecosystems. Companies are like organisms, while cities are like ecosystems."

 

The fact is that we need both, healthy organisms and a healthy ecosystem where these organisms can thrive. The industrial mindset continues to shape the social sector, and it can be challenging to transcend our organizations – we tend to over-identify with them, and to compete rather than collaborate with natural allies, this can make for an unhealthy ecosystem.
