John Cleese on the Creative Process
I came across this great video this morning of John Cleese speaking on the topic of creativity and what he has learned about the creative process throughout his life. Pretty interesting stuff. Thought I would share with you guys! Enjoy!

I finally had the time this morning to watch this. I think I learned something very amazing about creativity and, like Mr. Cleese, I can’t imagine how I’ve never noticed it before. I had many times in my life where “sleeping on it” allowed me to solve a problem easily. Diagnosing and rebuilding engines is that way. Writing computer programs when I was 8 years old was even that way. I’ve been doing this all my life, but only by accident. How much better could I be at it if I did it on purpose!
I only wish I’d made better use of this in college – instead of trying so hard to force the ideas to come in design school. I have no doubt it would have made me life easier! haha
