MATT REDMAN Shares TIPS FOR CREATIVITY

 

Uber acclaimed worship leader and songwriter, Matt Redman, took to twitter a few days ago to share what he referred to as “Tips For Creativity.” I thought the tips were brilliant.  There are 5 tips in total.  While most of them refer to song-writing, they can be applied to other creative arts too.

 

Tips for creativity, no.1 – “Imagination is like a muscle. It grows stronger when you flex it.” – John Piper

Tips for creativity, no.2 – “You can have 1,000 ideas, but unless you capture an emotion, it’s an essay.” – Bono, U2.

Tips for creativity, no.3 – “I have principles, not a formula.” -Director James Cameron describing his movie-making approach.

Tips for creativity, no.4 – “An unending curiosity for doing something different.” – Producer Sir George Martin on The Beatle’s approach to artistry.

Tips for creativity, no.5 “When a person speaks or writes or sings or paints about breathtaking truth in a boring way, it is probably a sin.” – John Piper
