18 Things Creative People Do

by Lindsay Shapka in ,


In the midst of the never-ending quizzes, pictures of babies and comments on the weather in my Facebook news feed today, I came upon an article in the Huffington Post titles "18 Things Highly Creative People Do Differently" by Carolyn Gregoire. She writes that; "while there's no "typical" creative type, there are some tell-tale characteristics and behaviors of highly creative people".

Here is her list:

  1. They daydream
  2. They observe everything
  3. They work the hours that work for them
  4. They take time for solitude
  5. They turn life's obstacles around
  6. They seek out new experiences
  7. They "fail up"
  8. They ask the big questions
  9. They people-watch
  10. They take risks
  11. They view all of life as an opportunity for self-expression
  12. They follow their true passions
  13. They get out of their own heads
  14. They lose track of time
  15. They surround themselves with beauty
  16. They connect the dots
  17. They constantly shake things up
  18. They make time for mindfulness
