You were six years old once, too

The Presentation Zen blog talks about an ongoing frustration of mine; people who think they're not creative and therefore settle for crappy looking documents and presentations.

Creativity springs from those few years in early childhood, when you learned how to color in between the lines, but hadn't learned (yet) that the sky wasn't supposed to be chartreuse, as your teacher/parent/peers told you.

You're not six years old now, and your Crayolas are now Microsoft Office or Photoshop or Dreamweaver. Learn how to paint the sky pink again.

    The desire for perfection and fear of crappyness stifle creativity.

    I see from your blog that you do not suffer from these.

    Why thank you. I'm glad you think I'm creative.
