According to and article on Fast Company, creativity in adults has been on the decline since the 90s.  If they said since 2008 – I’d be the first to blame the economy.  In the licensing industry as in many others, we have seen more and more stores and manufacturers playing it safe to stay in business.  Smaller orders, more traditional themes and colors… etc. etc. etc.

But according to this article (stay tuned – the link is coming!) – creativity scores have been on the decline.  I found it to be an interesting read both for myself but also as a mother, aunt and friend to many young people.  I began to take stock of how we encourage our kids, how social pressure and expectations play a role in creativity and more.

Today I want you to leave this blog and read The 7 Biggest Creativity Killers by Gaia and Andrew Grant.

Then take a few minutes and make sure these dynamics aren’t affecting your creativity or that of those you know and love.

Here’s to your creative success –
