John Cleese on Creativity

In this very interesting video British actor and comedian John Cleese of Monty Python fame talks about how to be creative. He rightly points out that creativity is not a talent or has anything to do with IQ. It is a “way of operating” in the world. He talk about two ways of operating – a closed mode and an open mode, and creativity flourishes in the later. This means that everyone can be creative, they just have to operate in a particular way which makes their natural creativity to function. More on these two modes of operating in the video below.
