John Cleese How to be Creative

Telling People How to be Creative is Easy. It’s only Being it that’s Difficult.

I don’t remember how I came across this great lecture on how to be creative by John Cleese but I think it is a must watch for everyone that needs to be creative – which is essentially all of us.

If you are a blogger, journalist, teacher, video maker or any other kind of content creator you know that being creative on command often results in the exact opposite. Even I struggle from time to time with motivation or finding myself in a writer’s block.

In his lecture Cleese gives some great advice on how to train yourself to be creative, find room to get ideas and how to play with them.
