Julie Burnstein: Four Lessons in Creativity

  • Be open to experiences that might change you: Creativity grows out of everyday experiences – including letting go.
  • Accept challenges: Creativity often grows from the broken places – Embrace the challenge! Let go of the present to be able to explore the future. Richard Serra let go of painting, but he did not let go of art.
  • Embrace limitations: Discover insights and develop new appreciations as you deal with limitations and constraints.
  • Experience loss (rejection, heartbreak, war, death)
