"Art is when a person's being does something for the primary time." - Seth Godin

"The point isn't to try to to something that's never been done before, but something you've never done before." - Liz Gilbert

These two quotes are both from people I highly respect and admire. I found them in completely different places. But, together, i feel they carry up a really important question.

In Seth Godin's view, art and creation is that moment when something completely new happens for the primary time ever. That thing had never been done or thought before within the history of the planet .

While it's going to not be clear from the quote that that is what he meant, he went on in his ask describe it. He highlighted new inventions and ideas that transform the planet and alter how things are done.

Granted, those are amazing and important moments of creativity and inspiration.

But it also somehow makes creativity or art feel inaccessible. "How am i able to consider something brand new? Everything has been thought of already!"

It's a large order .

Those moments of genius that change the planet are rare.

Or are they?

Meanwhile, Liz Gilbert has chosen to specialise in the individual experience of creativity.

Just because something has been done before doesn't diminish the very fact that it's an act of courage and growth once you roll in the hay for the primary time.

Plus, you're likely to try to to it differently than anyone else. You bring your own voice and knowledge and personality thereto . nobody has ever done it before quite like that!

Like Liz, i think that creativity is for the masses. it's about the daily practice to point out up and alter and grow.

Then, again, maybe there's room for both. Even for you, and me!

We should certainly allow ourselves... no, challenge ourselves... to undertake new things, and grow and make throughout our lives.

In that process we'll have an awful lot of thoughts!

Have you ever had the experience of second guessing your own new ideas? there's a voice that says , "Someone else probably already thought of that."

And sometimes, it's true.
