And neither is obscure preaching.

How Creativity is affected by time

  • SomeGuy

    Some day I want to write an article about ways to seem profound without saying anything. I’ll include obscurity, gibberish, contradictions (“God is personal-and impersonal!:), and so on. I need to do an infographic in bingo-card style so you can tick off items as you hear them!

    The video makes a good point. But… what if the children had been given 10 hours for their task? Many of them would (as I would) have done the work in the last 10 minutes and produced excellent results. The first 9h50m would likely have been spent watching TV, talking to friends, etc. The lesson here is that very short deadlines produce basic work; reasonable, but still relatively short, deadlines, produce good creative work done by focused creators; Long deadlines produce good creative work but also a lot of wasted time. Deadlines are still important and are a help to creativity when they are reasonable.

      Yes Richard, there has to be some deadline for most people. The video overstated a good point that should be borne in mind when dealing with creatives. I totally agree that some projects are about good basic work and deadlines are necessary here. Other creative projects, where we are aiming for really top class results, probably are hindered by over-tight deadlines.
