Summary
"We've been conditioned to think about creative genius as a dichotomy: dreamers versus doers, creativity versus discipline, the spark versus the grind. But what if we're wrong? What if it's the spark and the grind? We love people whose creative genius arrives in sudden sparks of inspiration. Think of Archimedes in his bathtub or Newton under his apple tree. But we also admire people who work incredibly hard and long for their creative breakthroughs. Think of Edison in his lab, grinding through hundreds of failed variations on the lightbulb. We remember his words in tough times: "Genius is 1 percent inspiration, 99 percent perspiration." Now Erik Wahl, a visual artist, speaker, and entrepreneur, helps us unite the yin and yang of creativity-- the dynamic new ideas with the dogged effort. He shows why we won't get far if we rely on the spark without the grind, or the grind without the spark. What the world really needs are the creators who can hold the two in balance."--
