[vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_column_text]The future will come. It's an immutable fact. There may be nothing we can do to change that fact, but can we influence the world of tomorrow for the better?
I often say doing nothing or repeating the past are not options, and business pundits have long told us that the world is no longer business as usual. From evolving demographics and elusive audiences to changing tastes and shifting political climates, we only need to look at our own experiences to see the world is a different place.
So, if it is not business as usual and repeating the past is not an option, then change becomes a necessity. But, hopefully not change for change’s sake. Rather, change that is born out of new ideas that have come from knowledge, experience, experimentation and divergent thinking, failure and success, risks and, yes, hard work.
In other words, creativity.
Therein lies the challenge – to understand creativity as it relates to our work, striving for the success of our organizations, artists and audiences.
There is nothing about creativity that is easy. But, perhaps the first brave step is recognizing and agreeing that the future will come and we can do something about it.
At the beginning of a new year, perhaps there is no better time than to take that brave step and use creativity to do something positive to better our lives, our work, and the world around us.
