Creativity, Inc

This is more than slightly off my normal type of posting. And ended up long ... but this is also sort of where I figure things out and record them so bear with me. Won't always/even usually be like this. So not your thing? Move along today but please come back!

Creativity, Inc.: Overcoming the Unseen Forces That Stand in the Way of True InspirationCreativity, Inc.: Overcoming the Unseen Forces That Stand in the Way of True Inspiration by Ed Catmull

So all of these quotes come from the book by Ed Catmull and Amy Wallace. Still for the life of me cannot remember what possessed me to put it on my Goodreads TBR list. And then to see if my local library had it (because they are small and often don't have what I want). So then when it was there on my hold shelf I had to pick it up and try it, right?

Teaching is creative, is it not? I'm not an eloquent enough writer to do a whole blog post on that.

Just going to post some iPhone snaps of pages that stood out to me. I was too lazy (and kept on reading) to retype them all. If I got the page number, I added that to the image. If I didn't, well ... go read the book! You can find wherever it was! (Terrible teacher librarian of me, isn't it?)

And yes, realize that if I pull bits out of context you are getting MY interpretation and perhaps not what he intended. I hope I didn't do that but I might have.

Creativity Inc favorite quotes
YAY for research! They are talking about research trips for making movies (apparently Disney got away from that for a while ... which seems very odd to me considering all the little video clips on DVDs that show all the old school animators going to South America. But then, there, we're seeing what we wanted to see. And yes, apparently things at Disney got pretty hairy there for a while! Kind of like, oh, education right now? They pulled through it!) but as a TL I just love the idea of it anyway. Authentic. Inspiring. Creating.

Creativity Inc favorite quotes PLN
PLNs! I don't always say a lot on Twitter. Or even always comment on blogs I read. But I read them. And learn from them. So thanks!

Creativity Inc favorite quotes trust
Don't you wish politicians and the general public would trust us?

Creativity Inc favorite quotes risk
And sometimes our own?

Creativity Inc favorite quotes teambuilding
This one also had many meanings for me with so much administration change last year and then knowing my beloved assistant of my entire school library career will not be there in the fall. I know the part time replacement. Have known him for years. Just have to figure out how we're going to work together!

Creativity Inc favorite quotes failure
Experience failure fast. Go at it! Try! If you fail ... because you went for it you have time to FIX IT! If you hem and haw forever and THEN still fail it's harder to fix things. ;)

Creativity Inc favorite quotes earn excellence
The word is rigor. Among many others.
