In times of crisis creativity is born
In times of crisis, creativity flourishes. We have seen this reflected in the way birthdays, graduations, weddings have been celebrated and how work from home, virtual social and work meetings and online education are being developed.
Creativity is born of anguish like the day of the night, said Albert Einstein and ensured that we did not intend for things to change if we always do the same. He saw crises as a blessing that brings progress to people and often to countries. “It is in the crisis that inventiveness, discoveries and great strategies are born. Whoever overcomes the crisis overcomes himself without being "overcome." Whoever attributes his failures and hardships to the crisis, violates his own talent and respects problems more than solutions. ~ Einstein ~
Times have always been difficult, but great solutions and inventions have been born in adversity. What can we do to reinvent ourselves? I assure you that we all have the necessary resources to do it, but fear paralyzes us and does not let us progress, create, invent. Getting out of the comfort zone is not easy; However, it is the way that will help us discover a new path and a better future.
We are experiencing a pandemic and psychological war between information and disinformation; between fear of the unknown and silence to the hidden truth; and maybe we will never know the reality. What we do know is that we are characters in an incredible historical moment that affects us universally. It is time to let go of fears, to enter into ourselves, to move away the noises from the outside, to look around at those around us, to evaluate priorities, to validate the opportunity that is in front of us.
Let us not be infected by fear or laziness to find solutions. It is in difficulties that the best of each one emerges ... and the worst, too. Some do not want to hear that we are in times of crisis, but we are. To silence the crisis is to exalt conformity. Let's work creativity to get out of this crisis with a new life lesson.
There is no more time for individualism, but for collectivism. Let's go back to basics, make it the starting goal for change. It's time for creativity!
Nature + Collaboration + Productivity = Peace
