Creative uest Review É 102 Ynthesizes all the creative philosophies lessons and stories he’s heard from the many creators and collaborators in his life and reflects on his own experience to advise readers and fans on how to consider creativity and where to find it He addresses many topics what it means to be creative how to find a mentor and serve as an apprentice the wisdom of maintaining a creative network coping with critics and the foibles of success and the specific pitfalls of contemporary culture all in the service of. What a warm book a great joy to read It s like The War of Art Break Through the Blocks Win Your Inner Creative Battles but without the weird cancer victim blaming and with of an introspective self reflection vibe going onThere s so much mature smart stuff hereEspecially in a hyperconnected world you cannot stop stealing from others it s impossible to remember whether an idea you had is novel or whether you saw it on Twitter late at night 2 years ago That s not a bad thing but you have to develop from there you have to curate your inner space You have to let some things in and purposely leave some things outCreative people need to start thinking of themselves a little differently Now in the twenty first century creative life also includes some management of other people s creativity and the overlap between yours and theirs To put it a different way you can be an artist but you also have to be a curator You have to occupy both of these roles at the same timeI find that very interesting and it reminded me of Kobo AbeHaruki Murakami I think part of the reason Murakami is so popular in Western audiences is that there is no point of reference no similar author However I m convinced that Murakami took a lot from Kobo Abe who I only discovered because once I thought I ll read the whole public library in Muenster starting from A I gave up at Chinua Achebe because the glue of the books smelled weird That s not a bad thing that s how art works but it s great luck for Murakami that Abe is so unknown get The Box Man it makes Murakami stand out I wonder how many other authors stand out in a similar way just think of Umberto Eco and his neverending knowledge of booksThere s so much other cool stuff like this uoteProtocreativity Prepackaging Whatever it is it can be useful If you re a writer imagine the blurbs that will be on the paperback If you re a painter imagine what people will say when they re standing in front of your canvas This is another example of being present but not present you are the creator but also the eventual audience When you re on the outside of your own work looking in you ll be able to see the overall shape of it which will help you to realize that you re on the right track or alternatively that you re notThe best scientists talks I ve seen were clearly thought out in a similar way I ve seen the greats finish their talks take uestions say ah yes and show a few slides they prepared in advance slides which didn t fit with the story they wanted to tell but slides which answered the audience uestion perfectly That always leaves me in awe uestlove has a similar story where he expected that someone on the Internet will claim that his drums on a record weren t played live and weren t played through so he put in a tiny fill at a particular position so he could point any future naysayer to that second that is so cooluestlove is not a fan of artists who present themselves as pure outside of any commercial interest He lists a few points where commercial interests are the drivers of the art without it the art would ve never been made the deadline I m reminded of Douglas Adams who would ve never finished The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy without the BBC s deadlines famously writing scenes for the radio play while the previous scene was being recorded in the next room over In science it s very similar the majority of scientists I believe need a structure around them they need a goal to work towards Nowadays it s the paper the publication in the past it was the public presentation I think that the focus on papers is one of the drivers of a faster scientific progress but that s hard to prove the professional scientist is a very recent invention too and now there s so many compared to Darwin s timeOne great example you should probably read is Mlodinow s Feynman s Rainbow A Search for Beauty in Physics and in Life which is or less exactly about this dichotomy between inner drive towards creativity and outside pressures to produce results After a highly promising PhD thesis Mlodinow was offered a uniue do whatever you want position which is what the book is about Without external structure Mlodinow crashed and burned and eventually left science I believe that most scientists would ve fared similar That s not to say that wasting years of your life writing grant applications are necessary but I believe like uestlove that this external structure driving you on is mostly necessaryAnother great point uestlove brings up is failureDavid Bowie said something I really liked I don t know if he said it often but it s the kind of thing that you should get tattooed on your leg He said that creativity is one of the few human endeavors where you can crash your airplane and walk away from it Your mistakes don t have to bring you down not by any means But Bowie s observation has an even deeper level Creative failures can feel like near death experiences and surviving them can create a sense of liberation Creative failure leads to a similar liberation When you walk away from your crashed airplane you re playing with house money You can do anything and hopefully you will Failure is sometimes in your mind Sometimes it s in the eye of the well not the beholder exactly but the afflicted Even when it s not even when it s indisputable it s never the end true creative people don t walk away from it not exactly They walk toward the next thingHow good is that It works similar in research one of the things I have to learn as an early career researcher is when to admit defeat when to kill a project Sometimes research just doesn t work you neither proved or falsified the basic hypothesis nothing makes sense and I ve seen people waste years of their career going down these nowhere paths The day you kill those projects the day you kill your darlings you ll feel sad but also liberated I think Konrad Lorenz wrote something to the tune that as a researcher every day before breakfast you should kill your favourite hypothesis it keeps you youngAnyway read this book if you want a warm mature kind voice telling you about creativity as a lifelong pursuit you won t regret itPS Somewhere uestlove cites a self motivational letter Michael Jackson wrote to himself when he was starting out on his solo career I should be a new incredible actorsingerdancer that will shock the world It reminded me of Octavia E Butler s wonderful letter here go read it uestlove uses this as an example for the necessary departures a creative person makes to break out of the mould other people see them in
