"Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask a creative person how they did something, they fell a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while."
How I happened upon The Element, I do not remember. But the fact is, this book changed the way I look at myself - from how the education system in this country failed me (and continues to do so for millions of children) all the way up to how my own creative process works.
I find it serendipitous that, unbeknownst to me, I had recorded a quote by Ken Robinson early on in my learning process this year and did not realize - even when I was reading The Element - that I already had a small connection to him.
