I will be studying the works by Robert Fritz during 2014. Tomas Löwstedt of Dynamic Urge will guide me through the creative process. Here is an excerpt from the post, The Most Successful Process for Accomplishment in History:
The popular image of the creative process and of creators is totally wrong. Rather than having bursts of irrational creative energy that explode into exploits leading to masterpieces, creators - especially professional ones who have deadlines, budgets, and so on - have a practical sense of logistics, craft, and technical aspects of their various fields. They also have imagination, which is put to good use on behalf of the outcomes they want to create.
Now, here is the most obvious, and yet most ironically obscure point that reaches well beyond the talented among us: the creative process is the most effective process by which to create a life you love. It can be learned by everyone, the same way people can learn to drive a car, use a computer, play golf, or build a business.
We have not been trained to think of our lives as the subject matter of the creative process. Even great artists often do not think to use what they have mastered in their art and apply it to their lives. They do their art one way, and their lives another way.

What's is your take on the creative process in your daily work?
